I've generally found the funny error codes useful. For example, they are far more easily remembered by the novice user. Also, they are more easily searched for (both via internet search engines and simple greps of the code) because they are more 'unique' (internet), more likely to be quoted in full (internet), and less likely to be autogenerated from several non-obvious parts (grepping the code).
