DBMS vs BDSM  
Developers' joke in Wikipedia:
====
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BDSM
Not to be confused with DBMS.
====

I guess there are enough similarities between BDSM and DBMS that people confuse these things:
1) Both are complex systems.
2) Dominant (DBA) and submissive (DBMS) participants are present at both.
3) Mutual dependence.
4) Occasional misbehavior.

Update:
The joke is gone now:

Good point!
There can be also a threesome: MBA -> DBA -> DBMS.

MBA provides a dungeon.

Wow. Have to read "SM101"...

Yet another similarity is how well documented both BDSM and DBMS are + focus on safety:

5) Both have "master" and "slave" concepts.

Thanks - I missed out that part.
