I know there's also a joke in there about a stack overflow, but I can't quite piece it together.

Yes, the programming gods tried to compile the "Peace on Earth" function, and it bugged. Now their earthly minions have to study the function, line by line, to find that one missing/added semicolon or bracket...

Probably tastes as burnt as Starbucks coffee, too.

Wait, was it a large or medium volcano or an extra large.

\drinking coffee (internal starbucks machine at work, free) so I am really making an ash of myself ...

I predict everyone will be able to escape, but there will be lots of damage since the lava will be running slow and take up lots of space.
