Geek Humor - A History Of Programming Languages

This history of programming languages post is absolutely hilarious. Take the description of C, for example:

1972 - Dennis Ritchie invents a powerful gun that shoots both forward and backward simultaneously. Not satisfied with the number of deaths and permanent maimings from that invention he invents C and Unix.

It's funny, because it's true.


  1. I was trying to choose a favorite but they are all great....

  2. So true, so true.

    I feel like this could be used in an interview - have the interviewee read it over and see what they do and don't laugh at.

    What better way to see how thoroughly they understand a language?
