BritSpeak #4: One might think that

Tuesday, October 30, 2007 – 9:02 PM

This is another one of those subtext things.

“I don’t know why anyone would bother with managed code. My developers are just as productive in VB6 as anyone else! In fact I’m thinking of starting up some old school C projects just to buck the trend. ”

“One might think that”

Actually it’s “One might think that… if one was mentally deficient.”

You really need to watch some of those old British commedy shows like “Yes Minister” to appreciate this one fully – “one might think that Sir Humphrey…” Lots of this stuff is finally becoming available on region 1 DVD. Well worth picking up if you have any cash to spare.

(And before anyone comments about how great VB6 is/was this is “humor”. Don’t let it get to you)
