Languages as people representing themselves at a conference, arguing about which one is better.

Some of my old favourites were left off the panel:

Python: Just because I'm named after a TV show doesn't mean I'm not serious. I'm originally from Holland, and we don't do silly. I have a very big toolchest and I am very dynamic!

Lua: Hi, I'm from Brazil, cute and petite, and I can run faster than Python

Python: That's because you don't carry a toolchest! Besides, your regexps look like cartoon swearing.

FORTRAN: All these young whippersnappers have no idea what it was like to land two men on the moon with 16K core. In those days, if a program needed to request more memory, we would have to ask the operators nicely to run our jobs over the Thanksgiving weekend. That taught you about efficiency.

C: That's the only thing we do agree on, daddy-o. I'm much happier now after the C++ divorce. He tried but you could tell his heart really wasn't into lean and mean.
