I just saw this on Twitter and thought I'd share. Anyone else have any nerdy jokes to help get us through to the weekend?

That is a great one, Bethany.

I missed the weekend, but for Monday morning here is my all-time favorite nerd-toon.

Of all the Excel functions, which on is most vain?
VLOOKUP. It always has to look right.

The cartoon blog "Tales from Redesignland" was awesome and hilarious (in a Dilbert-like way)

http://redesignland.blogspot.com/

The cartoons focused on the trials and tribulations for web teams mostly in a higher education setting but anyone who has done web project management, managed a website for organization, or been through web redesigns can relate.

Unfortunately, the site was discontinued in 2013 but the archives are still up from 2007 - 2013

Here's a few greatest hits
