Terrible Network Puns

So, my good friend Rob was inspired by a line from my last article “Go forth an route”. He came up with several puns of nightmarish perportions…I wanted to share them:

“May all your packets arrive at their destination”
Not too bad:)

“ACK’s not what your router can do for you….”
Waaa waaaa waaaaahhhhhh

“All your SYN’s are forgiven”
I think a clown somewhere just died for that pun.

hehehehehe…Rob, I LOVE these…even though I died a little on the inside from reading them. You guys care to add your worst puns? No pressure Jimmy…hehehe

    Hehe, we have a bunch of terrible networking jokes here at “Doomhouse”.

    Some of them are completely nonsensical, others require a basic understanding of networks, some are taken from things clients have asked us.

    “Can you ping me a /24 of MPLS please”
    “I’d like to buy a dynamic gateway of FNN’s”

    Reoccurring misspeak when referring to non-computerised objects: “..on its default settings.”

    “Do I have to ACK(ask) you again?”

    In response to “I can’t find my X”: “Have you tried pinging it?”

    Whenever non-electrical devices are broken: “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”

    I got into networking because my doctor told me I needed more fiber.
