    Is this real?



    If yes, then how did they manage to get a programmer who was willing to build their website?

    It would be valid in C, but I'm not sure how many other language that would be valid in.

    Funny, but it looks to just be an ad.

    AXE's catch phrase is along that lines.
    This particular "ad" (assuming it actually is), is far more derogatory IMO. In short it pretty much says if you can read programming code, you need a girlfriend. At least that's what I interpret of it. Perhaps a better replacement would be gets(the.girl);.

    I was thinking this was kind of insult to programmers.
    Like we need to get girlfriend if we can code, because programmers stereotype is alone living nerd(?)

    I'm not sure you guys get what I'm saying.

    Look at the complexity of their website: http://www.axe.ca/
    Surely they had to get a programmer to do some work on there. None of their programmers took offense to this ad?

    (I'm not at all serious with this, a paying job is a paying job.)

    the fact that they arent getting it, is the funniest part of this entire conversation. - answer - they did it for the money of course

    Of course it wont work, there are many things that need to be defined in that conditional statement.
