As a C-language programmer, I find this LOLCODE to be as esoteric as they come. :lol:

It could be worse, it could be VBScript...

Also, php >> all (except possibly c++ but DEFINATELY not vanilla c)

lol php is a huge joke of a language, it runs as slowly as perl (also the syntax is based off of C constructs so it's funny you should say that)

I'm not saying anything bad about C-style syntax - I LIKE C-style syntax - I just find that php is much nicer to use than C. It's a pain having to do memory management manually at that level. It might be efficient from a runtime point of view but it certainly slows the speed at which you can crank out code.

isn't the whole point of coding to make something run the quickest and most efficient way, not so a coder can have a break :P i'd be writing everything in java/c# if it was the other way round!

Then use something like Python or Ruby (or even Java), but PHP isn't even really a programming language, it's a scripting language. You can't do a lot of things with PHP like you can with any real programming language.

Oh god, Ruby's just slightly better than lolcode...

I agree with Entropy though, you can't really call PHP a programming language... :)
