[This is even more digression but this whole page is just noise anyway, so]
While this cartoon is very funny it misses the technical point. A decent database language would allow garbage-in/garbage-out and not require the insane amount of (brittle) sanitizing that SQL requires.
Prepared Statements solve this problem. While their use should be mandatory they're not even part of plain SQL.
SQL is a joke from another age.
