LoLCode, a programming language for random cats with captions


If you aren't into programming you probably won't get this. In fact, if you haven't encountered the exciting and superbly stupid Internet fad of posting captions on pictures of other peoples cats, you probably still won't get this even if you are into programming.
LolCode is a new(theoretical) programming language based on Anil Dash's LoLCat grammar dictionary. If you haven't read it you really should. It's hilarious. You can find his grammar dictionary at Cats can has grammar.

Anyway, back to the programming language. Here is an example of loop to count to 10.

HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
I HAS A VAR
IM IN YR LOOP
UP VAR!!1
VISIBLE VAR
IZ VAR BIGGER THAN 10? KTHXBYE
IM OUTTA YR LOOP
KTHXBYE


I love the begining and ending tags in the language. Hai and Kthxbye are just great.
