in reply to Programing languages as wines

APL is a fortified wine and somewhat of an acquired taste. Consumption in large amounts may lead to terminal insanity.

Java - somewhat objectional structure, hints of coffee, open to interpretation but often seems to be created just before consumpton.

Lisp - orotund (perhaps excessively). Inspirational (but are the results (of the inspirations (caused by imbibing (the wine)) of the drinker) worthwhile?)

Cobol - Flatters to deceive, apparently a powerful and complex wine, but leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Older vintages should probably be avoided
