Beware the SQL Community!

Today, I was going about my business attempting to answer an innocent question that had been asked on the #sqlhelp hash tag when moments later I receive the following Tweet…

Oh dear…what have I done…

As soon as I saw this Tweet I knew I’d dropped a clanger (fatherjack is never one to miss a double entendre…). I click on the link and wait in anticipation for yfrog to load…

Do you spot the faux pas?

I did of course write an abbreviation for the word “analysis” but the SQL Community Tweeps had other ideas…

And the reason why I am publicly re-humiliating myself you might ask? …

Blackmail!

…well at least I can save myself a little money and keep hold of the remainder of my beer tokens (for now) since Andre seems to have made it his lifes work to get hold of them!

So the moral of the story dear reader? Well as you will be all too aware, 144 characters is not sometimes enough to avoid dropping the occasional clanger. When it happens to you, have no fear there will be lots of SQL tweeps waiting around the corner to pounce and humiliate you further. You can do one of two things :-

  1. Embrace deck.ly
  2. Sit back and laugh

For now I shall take the second option and (silently) keep an eye on the Tweets emanating from fatherjack, dsfnet and AndreKamman. Be afraid guys, be very afraid! 🙂

Seriously though guys, thanks for making the SQL Community what it is, never a dull moment goes by with you all around. Keep it up!
