Video: esoteric programming languages by TheBreakingBit

This recent video by TheBreakingBit amused me. The incredible creativity that has gone into creating languages that ar, let’s face it, a little bit silly is staggering.

A favourite effort of mine that is missing from this video is Damian Conway’s fabulous CPAN module Lingua::Romana::Perligata which lets you program in Latin. Who wouldn’t want to do that?
