CompSci students ain't wot they used to be.
In the good old days, they were all overweight, with long unwashed hair,
wore coffee-stained tee shirts, and were rarely seen
as they only came out at night, like badgers.
They were more or less incapable of holding down normal jobs,
so they lived and worked in universities 4 floors below ground level,
and were given PhDs after 10 years, out of kindness.
Then they all became millionaires, or else went into mental hospitals.
