Little Elly

Little Elly gulped a magnet
thinking that it was a sweet,
ever after she felt drawn to
metal objects in the street.

When her mother lost a bracelet,
when her father dropped a nail,
when they lost a ring or necklace,
Elly found them without fail.

She would fall for boys with braces,
they would smile, and she would swoon,
later they would find her clingy,
and they'd dump her far too soon.

Passing cars became a problem,
sometimes pulling her in tow,
but the locals knew her story:
seeing her, they'd drive real slow.

One day Elly took a plane trip,
quite unplanned, her parents say:
KL-542 flew too low,
taking Elly far away.


I prefer the jokes related to Netbeans. Hey, maybe that's a good idea for a small contest.

Here is my contribution:

How to tell a joke in the Netbeans way?
1) You write a module that tell someone a joke.
2) You wait until someone implement a module that listen to the joke.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
