SQL Joke of the month
Nobody knows what a DBA does, but every company needs to hire one, because no one can afford to hire two.
At the premier of the first ever database movie "The Relational Chainsaw Massacre", the crowd is waiting for the stars to arrive:
The first limousine arrives and out steps Oracle followed by 4 people
Interviewer: Who have you brought along?
Oracle: I have 4 DBA's in tow. One to install me, one to design the databases, one to administer me and the other to justify the cost.
A second limo arrives and out steps DB2 followed by 40 people
Interviewer: Who have you bought along?
DB2: I have 2 DBA's, 2 hardware specialist and 36 consultants.
Another limo arrives and out steps SQL Server all on his own
Interviewer: Why haven't you brought anyone?
SQL Server: I didn't bring anyone because I am easy to install and am basically self managing. But I did bring this URL for sqlteam when the s#@t hits the fan.
