This made me laugh:

...although I don't get some of them. Like the Forth (muggers?), asp.net (whores?), erlang (The Lollipop Guild?). Any ideas? I'm guessing rubyists are portrayed as weirdos and not pedofiles.

I don't think this is the stereotypical, sole view of the Common Lisp programmer either.

The Forth reference is to the "Uni-Bomber" early terrorist not muggers :wink:

Enjoy the Choice :)

And the Erlang lot look to me like the Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz.

That says more about your imagination than it does about programmers!

I remember Forth Thgere was a complete package called Valdocs for the Epson series of computers. Valdocs and the Epson QX were years ahead of their time. Combined WP, spreadsheets, database and more in a single dedicated computer syste, It's one major drawback is it was too slow. Ths was in 1982
