Code Monkey Like Fritos

Greyjack writes "Jonathan Coulton's latest song in his thing-a-week series, Code Monkey, is an anthem for under-appreciated developers everywhere. From the song: 'Code Monkey get up get coffee / Code Monkey go to job / Code monkey have boring meeting, with boring manager Rob / Rob say Code Monkey very diligent / But his output stink / His code not functional or elegant / What do Code Monkey think?' Like virtually everything he does, he's released it under a Creative Commons license -- go forth, download, and share the goodness!"

Apr.23:Prostitute Schedule @ MBOT in San Francisco (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#15185779)

Like Las Vegas, San Francisco offers prostitution as a tourist attraction. If you want to buy some prostitution services (i.e., hand job, blow job, or full sexual intercourse), you need to merely walk through the doors of the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater (MBOT), located at 895 O'Farrell Street, San Francisco, California.

Check out the prostitute schedule for April 23, 2006 at the MBOT [fuckedcompany.com] .

The prostitute schedule is updated daily.

Unlike Las Vegas, San Francisco does not regulate prostitution. So, the MBOT heartily welcomes everyone -- including HIV-positive customers.

So, the MBOT heartily welcomes everyone -- including HIV-positive customers.

Is it me, or is this a new line from the MBOT spambot? Wonderful business decision. I'm sure that they'll get lots of HIV-positive business to make up for the other 98% of the population that's HIV-negative and may have second thoughts about a whore that heartily welcomes "HIV-positive customers."

And is there some reason these spammers haven't been arrested yet?

The idiocy of slashdot mods never ceases to amaze me. How exactly is this offtopic? Troll, maybe. Flamebait, possibly. But offtopic? Come on, it's a song about code monkeys sung in a broken voice without normal sentence structure, that's a style people use to represent cavemen. It's a direct comment on the song in the linked article. Moderator monkey not like use common sense.

Do code monkeys talk like fucking cavemen?


Okay, Mister I'm-pissed-off-because-my-sense-of-humour-has-gone -missing, I'll explain it to you: monkeys don't actually talk at all. However, it's hard to express humorous lyrics using only grunting and screeching, so the author tried to imagine what monkeys might sound like if they were able to talk, and came up with a form of pidgin English that resembles what some people imagine cave to sound like.

Infonaut (96956) | more than 8 years ago | (#15185598)

So far your the only one upset about something.

I've simply noticed lately that despite the abundance of free information and valuable tools that people give away for free, a surprising number of people snipe at the giftgivers for one reason or another. I wanted to see if my theory would be borne out with this story, because it is so clearly a case of someone simply giving something away.

My guess is that a few of the sharpshooters will show up for this one.

Did you get a login page to write as well?

No, but I'm sure I came across sounding like I did. It's probably the weather. I think weeks and weeks of overcast sky are finally driving me to lunacy. Too much time in the virtual world, not enough running around outdoors.

Either that or it really does just plain suck.

I have no idea where people get the idea that displaying a work of art for free is supposed to give it immunity to criticism.

I suspect that most of the people who believe this are themselves the tortured artiste type who cannot seperate criticism of their work from criticism of their soul.

For these type of people I can only say this:

Dude, get a grip and think about this to brighten your day - Maybe your soul really does just plain suck.

Well, you are spot-on about me being a tortured artiste type. I'm glad you were able to quickly identify my classification and get to the heart of the matter.

Actually I wasn't referring to criticism of the music itself. I should have more specifically stated that there will almost always be people ready to complain because the server is Slashdotted, or because the editors even posted the story in the first place, or because of something else. Something in the nature of threaded discussion like Slashdot brings out adversarial comments. That's a good thing, because it leads to thoughtful analysis. But it can also lead to criticism for its own sake, imho.

Dude, get a grip and think about this to brighten your day - Maybe your soul really does just plain suck.

Always a possibility, though I'm not sure how it'll brighten my day. Then again, something tells me you didn't really mean for it to brighten my day anyway.

I know you slashdot weenies like to think everything must be free, in whatever version of the term you like to use... but being free doesn't immediately make something good. If someone doesn't like the song, they have every right to say "this song sucks". Although, on slashdot the only acceptable choices are for everyone to hate it, or everyone to like it, and any viewpoints opposing the groupthink will quickly be modded into oblivion.

I hate how your post over-generalizes about the characters on Slashdot. I think we should petition to have you removed, Mr. "Infonaut", if that's even your real name. I mean, you are complaning about complaining. How am I supposed to complain if you already complained about complaining? You are depriving me of my pleasure, and the sole reason I would LTFA. I mean, what's the point of listening to pop culture if not to complain about how much it sucks? Hell, what's the point of participating in pop culture if we can't complaint about how we are all dominated by the consumerism of the culture we are inculcating amongst ourselves?

And week after week, it's always the same

And it's Ho, boys, can't you code it, and program it right
Nothing ever happens in the life of mine
I'm hauling up the data on the Xerox line

Then it's code in the data, give the keyboard a punch
Then cross-correlate and break for some lunch
Correlate, tabulate, process and screen
Program, printout, regress to the mean

Then it's home again, eat again, watch some TV
Make love to my woman at ten-fifty-three
I dream the same dream when I'm sleeping at night
I'm soaring over hills like an eagle in flight

Someday I'm gonna give up all the buttons and things
I'll punch that time clock till it can't ring
Burn up my necktie and set myself free
Cause no one's gonna fold, bend or mutilate me.

NEW POLICY: Simian software oursourcing (4, Funny)

mnemotronic (586021) | more than 8 years ago | (#15185730)

Attention all employees, especially those in sandels, tee-shirts, and shorts.

Due to proposed laybacks by our funding venture canabalists, all software engineer positions above the rank of "obsequious toadie" will be eliminated. This includes all over-paid, under-producing, slashdotter "code monkey" positions in the north-40 cube-farm, whose jobs will be outsourced to S-E Asian simian coders, all of whom have doctorates in object-oriented poo-flinging, and work for coconuts. Don't be mad, you brought it on yourselves -- all those "Ludicrous" mp3 files on the server. You know how much it took to settle that lawsuit? Sheesh, I coulda lost my Saleen S7.

We, the upper management, almost sincerely regret the necessity of having to announce this decision, but our personal assistant was out today, so we got stuck doing it. Well, no time to chat -- my four-some is up, so get packing. Oh, by the way, all network access has been cut off, and security is on their way with some backup bouncers from my party last night! Whew, I'm glad the shareholders are picking up the tab for that. Have fun, and if you see me on the street, let's just pretend we don't know each other.

Code Monkey
by Jonathan Coulton

Code Monkey get up, get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting
With boring manager Rob

Rob say Code Monkey very diligent
But his output stink
His code not functional or elegant
What do Code Monkey think?

Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write goddamn login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
Big, warm, fuzzy, secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey hang around at front desk
Tell you sweater look nice
Code Monkey offer buy you soda
Bring you cup, bring you ice

You say no thank you for the soda, cuz
Soda make you fat
Anyway you busy with the telephone
No time for chat

Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle
He sit down pretend to work
Code Monkey not thinking so straight
Code Monkey not feeling so great

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
Big, warm, fuzzy, secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you... a lot

Code Monkey have every reason
To get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working
See a soft pretty face

Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake
Take bath, take nap
This job fulfilling in creative way
Such a load of crap

Code Monkey think some day he have everything, even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow...

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew

How weird, some of the comments suggested this song was good. How can it transcend the lyrics?

Or does this inane horseshit really resonnate with the average slashdotter?

Great song! For fun, play it back to back with 'Want You Bad' from The Offspring. The riffs are the identical!

Here's the link to his "Thing a Week" podcast [apple.com] in iTMS, which includes the Code Monkey song.

iTunes downloads podcasts from the publishing site, so that will be slashdotted too.

Nope... I just subscribed, and am downloading all the songs lightning fast.

I suspect the MP3s are on a different server from the web site.

Sounds crap to me. I don't know why you're all getting so excited over it. Seriously.

What with the piss-poor grammar on here? (0, Offtopic)

i41Overlord (829913) | more than 8 years ago | (#15186272)

I frequently see posts on here that use the wrong tense of verbs.

It seems that people, even ones which call themselves "educated", don't have a command of the English language.

I'm not referring to people who speak English as a second language, either.

can't get torrent to work either (1)

is the torrent somehow slashdotted too?
