Title: QC Captions vol. 401
Post by: cesium133 on 02 Dec 2018, 14:03
Since Zebediah indicated that he wanted to take a break from doing the QC Captions thread, I figured I'd jump in and do it for a while. So, to get it started:

MRS A.: "Never again will you be alone my good girl Cosmo! I will always be there to skritch you and give you walks and feed you treats..."

COSMO: "Wuf?"

CLAIRE: "It is a soul bonding!!!"

TAI: "I never have such a great time when high!"

Vet: “It’s a girl!”

Clairemom: “A girl! I’m a mother again!”

Claire: “Hooray! I have a little sister!”

Cosmo: (I don’t even know what’s going on.)

Tai: (Neither do I, Cosmo. Neither do I.)

CLAIRE: "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

MARTEN: "I think so, but why would anyone want to see Snow White and the Seven Samurai?"



I was ready to hit POST when it hit me that I did read this somewhere before and it was not a decaffeinated brain fart on my part.

Thanks, now I've got that theme stuck in my head for the rest of the day. :-P

Beepatrice: "Sometimes it's hard to break habits from former jobs. For instance, I used to be a toaster. That's why my face keeps over heating. Not blushing, not anxious. Honest! Toaster! See?!"
Roko: "Sure, Sure..."

Beepatrice: “Ahhh! I’m melting! Melting! Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness! You and your damned dog! Ahhhhhh!”

Roko: “So you were really Corpse Witch in disguise all along! Suddenly I’m not sorry I spilled my tea on you!”

I'd suggest "APL" (an old extremely terse computer language which could write whole programs in a single incomprehensible line).

Hi back to you! Would you like to introduce yourself?

I think the most horrible programming language I've ever used - that wasn't deliberately intended to be horrible - is an obscure one designed mostly for text editing.  It's called TECO.

TECO has one extremely unusual property.  Any string of printable characters is a valid program.  Any.  String.  The Gettysburg address is a valid program.  I have no idea what it does, but you could run it if you want to and find out.

Well, for what it's worth, Emacs has the same property.

It's just that most characters run the "self-insert' routine.

Yes, that's right. The letter 'a' runs a small e-lisp fragment which inserts an 'a' at the current cursor.

You can't make these things up.

Possibly because (at least according to Wikipedia), Emacs was originally implemented in TECO.

Interesting. I've used the TECO editor, but I had no idea it was written in a language also called TECO.

(It was a very strange editor, to be honest; I only used it when nothing else would do the job.)

Well, it's one language in which no syntax errors are possible.  All errors in TECO are semantic. Even if it's just an error because you mistyped something.

TECO the language was originally part of the project to implement TECO the text editor; but once it existed it could be used to do other things (by the very few who were insane enough to like it) or modify those things (by we very few who were devious enough to wonder how they'd work if changed).

I only ever used it for one project.  The semantics are sort of backwards-martian (like reverse-polish, only sideways...).

But yes, it allows you to see where the backwards-martian interface of EMACS came from.
