1. [humor and syntax] Hedy programming language

''Hedy'' is a language designed for small children. That is, children at the level of education where commas and periods are still being taught for their natural language.

Some fun quotes:

''It was also found that Java and Perl are not easier to understand than a programming language with randomly generated keywords, stressing the difficulties that novices face in understanding syntax.''

''...since we have found that learning to count from 0 takes considerable effort and practice, and does not necessarily add value for learners.''
