CJOKE.TXT - Joke in Pascal or C++

 * Subject: Joke in Pascal or C++
 * Did you ever try to tell a joke in Pascal, or C++ (same thing)?
 * I did...
 * One of the winners of the International Obfuscated C Contest 1990
 * was Brian Westley , and his program (Price for the
 * best layout) was this:

    double time, me= !0XFACE,
    not; int rested,   get, out;
    main(ly, die) char ly, **die ;{
        signed char lotte,

dear; (char)lotte--;
    for(get= !me;; not){
    1 -  out & out ;lie;{
    char lotte, my= dear,
    **let= !!me *!not+ ++die;

"The gloves are OFF this time, I detest you, snot\n\0sed GEEK!");
    do {not= *lie++ & 0xF00L* !me;
    #define love (char*)lie -
    love 1s *!(not= atoi(let
    [get -me?

(char)lotte: my- *love -
    'I'  -  *love -  'U' -
    'I'  -  (long)  - 4 - 'U' ])- !!
    (time  =out=  'a'));} while( my - dear
    && 'I'-1l  -get-  'a'); break;}}

(char)*lie++, (char)*lie++; hell:0, (char)*lie;
    get *out* (short)ly   -0-'R'-  get- 'a'^rested;
    do {auto*eroticism,
    that; puts(*( out
        - 'c'
-('P'-'S') +die+ -2 ));}while(!"you're at it");

for (*((char*)&lotte)^=
    (char)lotte; (love ly) [(char)++lotte+
    !!0xBABE];){ if ('I' -lie[ 2 +(char)lotte]){ 'I'-1l ***die; }
    else{ if ('I' * get *out* ('I'-1l **die[ 2 ])) *((char*)&lotte) -=
    '4' - ('I'-1l); not; for(get=!

get; !out; (char)*lie  &  0xD0- !not) return!!

    do{ not* putchar(lie [out
    *!not* !!me +(char)lotte]);
    not; for(;!'a';);}while(
        love (char*)lie);{

register this; switch( (char)lie
    [(char)lotte] -1s *!out) {
    char*les, get= 0xFF, my; case' ':
    *((char*)&lotte) += 15; !not +(char)*lie*'s';
    this +1s+ not; default: 0xF +(char*)lie;}}}
    get - !out;
    if (not--)
    goto hell;
        exit( (char)lotte);}

 * This program compiles and produces decent output.
 *   usage: westley 
 *   If you would rather "Daisy" someone other than Westley, rename 
 *   the program as needed.  :-)
 * Selected notes from the author:
 *     This is a "Picking the Daisy" simulation.  Now, instead of mangling a 
 *     daisy, simply run this program with the number of petals desired as 
 *     the argument.
 *     This is a good counter-example to peoples' complaints that C doesn't
 *     have an "English-like" syntax.
 *     Lint complains about everything - null effect, xxx may be used before
 *     set, statement not reached, return(e) and return.  Lint dumps core
 *     on some systems.  My personal favorite lint complaint is
 *         "warning: eroticism unused in function main".
 *     Also obviously, (char)lotte and (char*)lie are incompatible types...
