Impressive, Most Impressive

I have a copy of Design Patterns at work. Today I loaned it to one of the good co-workers. Now, in my opinion it's not the best work on patterns out there, but it is certainly still useful and is one of the (if not the) first serious books on the subject. The guy I loaned it to took it to the break room and one of the other "programmers" saw it. He says, "Interesting book, but there's really nothing new in it." Brilliant! It reminds me of when people say they don't like Shakespeare because it's too full of cliches and hackneyed plots. It's typical that the nutbags around here make some effort to sound intelligent and fail miserably.
