Am I That Predictable?: Sumana and my mother both pointed me to this cartoon.

: Hey, J. Bradford Delong did my map.

: I got a search request for "THE LIVING SOAP", but look on the bright side: at least I found this funny story because of it.

Birth Of an Email Forward: Collated from IRC:

Fitz and I [kfogel] were just speculating about what various programming languages sound like when you drop them.
Fortran       crunch
Perl          *thud* +bounce+ ~quiver~ (fading into silence)
C++           loud and messy, like if you took everything in a
              junkyard, connected it all together with cable, and
              dropped the whole mess from a cliff.
Lisp/Scheme   same sound as dropping a slinky
Java          no sound, already been dropped

The Inevitable Update: From Brendan.

PHP            sproing sproing ("stupid blasted") sproing ("off my 
               lawn") sproing
Python         Just like anything else, if air was Jell-O
Smalltalk      "Ouch!"
Pascal         *Crash.*  Now, did you notice how that sounded?  If you 
               were actually dropping something, it would have sounded 
               a lot like that.  Let's try again.
COBOL          (THUD)
Visual Basic  "I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't let you drop me."
