(An Open Source Poem)

I'd compiled a REALbasic poem
in which a Python
with a bad Lisp
named Haskell
(or Pascal)
concocted a Scheme
to swap a dull Ruby
for a shiny new Perl
from the king Cobol
while making Smalltalk
about Mathematica
over a cup of Java
before knocking him out with a SNOBOL

My prof gave it a C++
For fun. Inspired by a comment in one of those "How Nerdy Are You?" threads in the dA forums.

And yes, those are all actual programming languages.

Heh. Cute poem! Yeah, I recognized most of the languages (and I'm so ancient I was taught both Basic and Pascal -- even Logo!)

I am so late it's beyond funny, but thank you.

And yeah, whenever I attempt to explain the concept behind COBOL, younger people look at me the same way they do whenever I mention rotary phones and wooden tennis rackets.

So....this "COBOL" is used for tennis rackets? How odd....:D

Y'know, at some point around the middle of last century, it wouldn't've surprised me if somewhere, some racket-stringing machine had been COBOL-ed together. :la:
