Santa Claus Vs. the Sysadmin

JokeTribe - THE Best College Humor Archive of Funny Jokes

Santa must be a System Administrator

I was musing on similarities between Santa Claus and system administrators. Consider:

  1. Santa is bearded, corpulent, and dresses funny.

  2. When you ask Santa for something, the odds of receiving what you wanted are infinitesimal.

  3. Santa seldom answers your mail.

  4. When you ask Santa where he gets all the stuff he's got, he says, "Elves make it for me."

  5. Santa doesn't care about your deadlines.

  6. Your parents ascribed supernatural powers to Santa, but did all the work themselves.

  7. Nobody knows who Santa has to answer to for his actions.

  8. Santa laughs entirely too much.

  9. Santa thinks nothing of breaking into your $HOME.

  10. Only a lunatic says bad things about Santa in his presence.

About JokeTribe


These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on to the subscribers of our various jokes lists. Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes. Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text files to html.

If you are certain of the authorship of any of these, email us the author's name along with relevant information on how we can verify that they truly are the author so we can give them the credit that they deserve.
