"PHP
You shoot yourself in the foot with a gun made with pieces from 300 other guns."

That's a slight exaggeration.  It's more like thirty.


"Perl
You shoot yourself in the foot, but nobody can understand how you did it. Six months later, neither can you."

I have that with PHP, too. :sheep:


Also,  think that the C entry should be more along the lines of 'After spending many fruitless hours attempting to build your gun, you give up and use a match instead'.  Tongue

Yeah, thirty hundred. Tongue

Really competent programmers can laugh at the weaknesses of their favorite language. All the rest just keep trying to convince themselves, and others, why their choice is the best.

Once you are good enough to push hard on any language, or OS, you find something to laugh at!

CSS:
structure the HTML with a strict doctype and use advanced selectors only to find the next situation:
firefox: you shot yourself in the foot.
opera: you missed the foot in about 150px because it rendered wrong.
safari: you can never be too sure because no one here uses MAC…
IE5.5: gun backfires and hit your head.
IE6: gun fires after you hacked IE to recognize the :shoot > #right_leg selector but instead bounces off a float bug and hit yourself in #left_testicle.
IE7beta3: you think you completed the mission just to find out that IE7beta4 invented a whole different approach to CSS where you are the gun, the bullet is your leg and your leg got lost, and nowhere to be found…

Says far more about browsers than CSS, but very true though.

Note the gender stereotyping...  :unsure:

I'll be sure to avoid dating anyone who uses IE6, then.

An inaccurate bullet could be even worse ...   :unsure:
