BLOCKHAMS Caption Challenge Tomorrow

Submitted by Six Zero on July 18th, 2013 at 2:57 PM
Hey friends, hope you're all finding ways to beat the oppressive July heat. Just wanted to make a quick announcement that tomorrow's BLOCKHAMS strip will in fact be a Caption Challenge-- I'll draw up the artwork, throw in a half-completed word bubble, and you'll all be invited to fill in the blank with your best Michigan-related or semi-OT punchline! All entries on multiple venues (here, Twitter, & will be considered, and I'll choose the best to be added into the final comic for posterity, with the winning author receiving a by-line credit for their humor. Look for the strip to drop sometime after lunch tomorrow, Friday, July 19th. Looking forward to it! If you have any questions or concerns post below and I'll get back to them when I can. Thanks! 60

No. He has a Category column on his wittiness table which (ostensibly) contains a Madlibs entry. 


That said, the table should really be normalized such that the query would in fact be


UPDATE Wittiness

SET Level = 11

WHERE CategoryId = (SELECT Id from Category WHERE Category.Name = 'Madlibs');

Except he didn't put quotes around Madlibs, so he's saying that the value of the Category column and the Madlibs column need to be equal. This is all assuming that his query executes to completion, though.

And, as long as we are normalizing, we should move Level into its own Wittiness_Level table.

Headed up to flag tomorrow sans electronics for some camping with my sherpa.

Blind submission: “and that is how I found her third nipple.”
