Happy birthday UDP!

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/20

Today it’s the 40th birthday of UDP. Or more precise: 40 years after [WayBackRFC 768 – User Datagram Protocol got submitted.

It is still used a lot today, so be sure to read more background on [WayBackUser Datagram Protocol – Wikipedia.

And of course on a birthday, it is nice to have few good jokes. So here we go:

[WayBack“I would tell you a joke about UDP, but you probably wouldn’t get it.” | Hacker News

[WayBack] I would tell you a joke about UDP, but you probably wouldn’t get it. So here’s a TCP joke | reddit.


  • UDP packet bar walks into
  • The best thing about UDP jokes is that I don’t care if you get it. #sysadmin #networking #IT

You can generate more yourself:


# coding: utf-8
import random
array = ['i', ' ', 'w', 'o', 'u', 'l', 'd', ' ', 't', 'e', 'l', 'l', ' ', 'y', 'o', 'u', ' ', 'a', ' ', 'u', 'd', 'p', ' ', 'j', 'o', 'k', 'e', ' ', 'b', 'u', 't', ' ', 'i', ' ', 'w', 'o', 'u', 'l', 'd', ' ', 'n', 'o', 't', ' ', 'b', 'e', ' ', 's', 'u', 'r', 'e', ' ', 'i', 'f', ' ', 'y', 'o', 'u', ' ', 'w', 'o', 'u', 'l', 'd', ' ', 'g', 'e', 't', ' ', 'i', 't']
finalstr = ''
length = len(array)
for x in range(0, random.randint(0, len(array))):
finalstr += array.pop(random.randint(0, length1))
length = length1
print finalstr
