[somebody asks for the most elegant language]

* Jeffrey C. Dege
| I've recently invented a language that appears to be simpler and more
| expressive than any I've seen so far.  It contains no variables, no
| functions, and only one statement: "do_what_i_want".  Every program,
| no matter how complicated, when translated into my new language,
| is represented by this one statement.

you call _that_ elegant?  underline in the middle of variable names is
ugly, _real_ ugly.  `do-what-i-want' would be vastly more elegant.
