    Jargontalk


    In a mood I'll not impart, doing things I need not burden you with, I stumbled across this in an email:

    Jargontalk
    Larry Colen

    Twas Unix and the C++
    Did compile and load upon the VAX:
    All Ritchie was the Kernighan,
    And LISP ran in GNU EMACS.

    "Beware the Jargontalk, my son.
    The Mac that talks, the dull PC.
    Beware the Amiga, and shun
    The voluminous PDP."

    He took his listed code in hand:
    Long time the pointer bug he sought--
    So rested he by the Coke machine,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And as in nerdish thought he stood,
    The Jargontalk, with awk and grep,
    Came geeking through the COBOL wood,
    And edlin'd as it schlepped.

    One two! One two! And through and through!
    The line printer went click'ty clack!
    And with a meg of memory dump,
    He pulled an allnight hack.

    "And hast thou slain the Jargontalk?
    Telnet to me, my nerdish boy!
    Copyleft GNU! Callooh! Callay!"
    He deroffed in his joy.

    Twas Unix and the C++

    All Ritchie was the Kernighan,
    And LISP ran in GNU EMACS.
    And btw...I love "Jabberwocky" (the basis of this parody from "Through the Looking Glass" by Lewis Carrol, author of "Alice in Wonderland").
