“Why do Java programmers wear glasses?"/"Because they can’t C#.”

A programming riddle is:

Q: Why do Java programmers wear glasses?
A: Because they can’t C# (see sharp).


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2001 and has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: C Sharp (programming language)
C# (pronounced as see sharp) is a multi-paradigm programming language encompassing strong typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented (class-based), and component-oriented programming disciplines. It was developed by Microsoft within its .NET initiative and later approved as a standard by Ecma (ECMA-334) and ISO (ISO/IEC 23270:2006). C# is one of the programming languages designed for the Common Language Infrastructure.
