Exceptionally funny:

A Brief, Incomplete, and Mostly Wrong History of Programming Languages

My favorite:
1842 - Ada Lovelace writes the first program. She is hampered in her efforts by the minor inconvenience that she doesn't have any actual computers to run her code. Enterprise architects will later relearn her techniques in order to program in UML.

This post joins the ranks of hilarious episodes of programming humor:
  • Language Wars
  • Web Framework Trolling
  • If programming languages were religions...
  • If programming languages were cars...
