“While Alan Turing was cracking codes in WW2, his sister Kay was providing drinks & sandwiches”

English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist Alan Turing (1912-1954) did not have a sister named “Kay Turing” (catering), but there are jokes. 

“It’s a little known fact, that while the enigma machine codes were being cracked by Alan Turing, his sister Kay provided the tea, sandwiches and snacks” was posted on Twitter by Wolfy Dempsey on April 28, 2019. “Everyone knows Alan Turing who cracked Enigma codes. But nobody knows his sister Kay, who provided drinks, snacks and sandwiches for him and his colleagues during that time” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 25, 2020.

“Never realized until today that Karl Marx’s sister, Onya, invented the starting pistol” (Onya Marx = on your marks) is a similar type of joke.


Wikipedia: Alan Turing
Alan Mathison Turing OBE FRS (/ˈtjʊərɪŋ/; 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general-purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

Everyone knows Alan Turing who cracked Enigma codes.
But nobody knows his sister Kay, who provided drinks, snacks and sandwiches for him and his colleagues during that time.

Alan Turing is famous for code cracking, but his sister Kay, who provided food and drink to parties, is also well known.

Everyone knows Alan Turing, who cracked the Enigma codes.
Less well known is his sister, Kay, who provided the food and drinks for his team.

We all remember Alan Turing for his Enigma Machine…
But let’s not forget his sister Kay, who made the coffee and sandwiches.
Kay Turing…
