The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
Knowing if your colleagues have a sense of humor is important. It might not be the best approach to take with younger interviewers though. Until a year or two ago I'd have no idea where the reference was from. If I saw it growing up I'd forgotten about it since then.
OTOH my current consumption of TV probably averages under 2 hrs/week averaged over the whole year (hasn't been more than 3 or 4 shows at any point in the last 4 years, and generally not at all during summer repeats) mean a current TV reference isn't likely to work much better either.
Today's lesson is brought to you by the word "niggardly". Remember kids, don't attribute to racism what can be explained by Scandinavian language roots. -- Robert Royall
