i can has LOLcode?

some computer geek with way too much time on his hands and a healthy love for kitty macros has created the silliest programming language ever: LOLcode.

it reminds me a lot of BASIC...but the commands are all in kittyspeak. observe the classic "hello world" programme (or, more correctly, "HAI WORLD!") written in LOLcode:

HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
KTHXBYE

this, of course, opens the programme (HAI), pulls up the standard input-output file for the data (CAN HAS STDIO?), prints out text (VISIBLE), and ends (KTHXBYE).

this makes me so happy. i'm going to be spending way too much time this morning (afternoon?) reading up on LOLcode commands, because the idea of programming a computer in kittyspeak is far too amusing to reject.
