Front-End Web Dev Jokes

You may have noticed recently that I've tweeted some Front-End Web Developer jokes here and there. The feedback I've received has ranged from "Ha ha" to "Groan" to "Unfollow". I think most of those responses are out of fun, but who knows :) Others have encouraged me to continue making more jokes and have wondered where they can see a list of all the puns.
