Actually, I think Shazam should use AWK (if anyone gets this joke, raise your hand).

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.

    I don't (and I'm a Captain Marvel fan); could you explain?

      Because both SHAZAM (Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury) and AWK (Aho ,Weinberger, Kernighan) are acronyms of names!. Hahaha. Ha.

        You're partially correct. The word given by the Wizard Shazam to Billy Batson was the acronym SHAZAM. The name and the acronym are two different things.

        On the other hand, you get major kudos from me for remembering the gods that make up the acronym.

        Now, for a follow-up, shall we recite the Green Lantern oath together?
