Everything Crashes, But Programmers Are Still Jocular

This is completely off-topic, but I couldn't resist sharing this with anyone and everyone.  Whilst researching the frequent crashes on my iPhone, I ran across this post, and the first comment made me chuckle.

It appears that if the OS was unable to get a traceback for the crash (which seems to be the case in a lot of my crashes), the exception code given is: 0×8badf00d.

Could be worse. I remember one company getting a confused call from a customer about a 0xdeadbeef crash.
