Another topic for RubyConf

As if the folks at RubyConf don’t have enough to talk about already,
here’s another topic. The Lisp community has this famous quotation:

Schemer: "Buddha is small, clean, and serious."

Lispnik: "Buddha is big, has hairy armpits, and laughs."

So … fill in the following:

Rubyist: "Buddha is ..."

Pythonista: "Buddha is ..."

Java: "Buddha is ..."

Smalltalk: "Buddha is ..."

I’ll even contribute one:

Forth: ": BUDDHA POLISH REVERSE IS ;"

Shouldn’t this be (is Budda (small clean serious)) ?

Rubyist: "Buddha is ..."

Buddha.is_a?(:Buddha) => true # not proper duck typing, I
know

Buddha
is
a
whitespace-loving
being

Java: "Buddha is ..."

public class BuddhaFactory extends DietyFactory {
public void makeBuddha() throws Exception {

Hmm, actually:

class Buddha
def self.is(x,y)true end
end
small, clean, serious = [true]*3
Buddha.is small, clean and serious

Rubyist: "Buddha is ..."

class Buddha
def self.is(x,y)true end
end
def small;end
def clean;end
def serious;true end
Buddha.is small, clean and serious

Shh. A makeBuddha() method really shouldn’t be void ;:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Now, all that’s needed is to have an agent bytecode-enhance my classes
at load-time to implement the BuddhaAware interface for [insert IoC
container du jour here] to autowire the factory to them for all my
objects to achieve nirvana without the source code knowing!

Java metaprogramming Zen. The sheer scariness of it makes me admire
people like Geert Bevin a little more, even if he is a troll. And recall
how much more sense eval() makes. (Yes, it’s scary enough to make me say
-that- outrageous nonsense ;P)

Also, I’m surprised everyone missed the obvious:
Python: “Buddha is bloody albatross flavoured.”

Bash: Buddha is just a shell.

A project was failing miserably and the CEO went to the Project Manager
to ask her what happened.

“It was that crusty old Team Lead you made me hire! He constantly
undermined me.”

The CEO and the PM then called the Team Lead into the big CEO office and
told him he was fired for fumbling the project, and all the Team Lead
said was:

“Oh really?”

Some years later, as the company was sinking, the CEO was trying to sell
off the intellectual property that the Team Lead had developed. Problem
was that nobody was left to help the CEO document the code so that it
could be sold. He called up the Team Lead and ask him to come help sell
the code, telling him that it was a horrible mistake he was fired and
that he was almost obligated to help.

All the Team Lead said was, “Oh really?”

Rubyist: “If it walks like a Buddha and talks like a Buddha, it must be
a Buddha.”

Pythonista: “Buddha is very strict and always unyielding. Everyone but
Buddha is an idiot.”

Pythonista: “Buddha is very strict and always unyielding. Everyone but
Buddha is an idiot.”

Perl: Buddha is in array context here and should be treated as such.
Perhaps. Or is it scalar? Bless.

Umm, WTF? Please, people, can ONE thread involve a language that isn’t
Ruby and not degenerate into trolling and / or flaming? I know DHH
started a fine tradition of ill-informed overgeneralising rants getting
rewarded by the howling of fanboys, but I expected on the whole of
Rubydom to be a tad more mature.

Personally, I always imagined that Rubyists would have a sense of
humour.

Broadly accusing Python users of being arrogant? The bitter, bitter
irony of it. I fail to see the humorous point though.

Random abuse != funny. Welcome out of junior high.

The offending post was not random abuse. It was a fine spin on the
existing cliche of Pythonistas being narrow minded and arrogant
(personally, I have not experienced this, btw). I found it quite funny.
I’m sorry, that you don’t have the right sense of humour to see this.
But, and this is the main point, I very very much object to censuring
(alleged) humour just because it may be offensive to someone.
