| Silicon Valley Pet Shop
A tourist walks
into a pet shop in Silicon Valley, and is browsing round the cages on display.
While he's there, another customer walks in and says to the shopkeeper, "I'll
have a C monkey, please". The shopkeeper nods, goes over to a cage at the side
of the shop and takes out a monkey. He fits a collar and leash and hands it to
the customer, saying "That'll be $5000". The customer pays and walks out with
his monkey. Startled, the tourist goes over to the shopkeeper. "That was a very
expensive monkey - most of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did it cost
so much?" "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast, tight code, no bugs,
well worth the money". The tourist looks at the monkeys in that cage. "That one's
even more expensive - $10,000 dollars! What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a C++
monkey; it can manage object oriented programming, Visual C++, even some Java,
all the really useful stuff". The tourist looks round for a little longer and
sees a third monkey in a cage on its own. The price tag round its neck says $50,000.
He gasps to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together!
What on earth does it do?" "Well, I don't know if it does anything, but it says
it's a Contractor."
