My girlfriend and roommate were watching some Monty Python's Flying Circus last night. Made me miss the Monty Python references that early Python stuff tended to have. If I ever write a mangler, interpreter for another language, or anything that seems to make something dumber, I am going to call it Napkin (after the skit where a guy comes in saying he brain hurts while wearing a napkin on his head and everyone turns out to be stupid when they have a napkin on).
Or how about something that very superficially tries to be something else? Pantomime Horse!
