Quick Anectode About Learning Ruby

Ok… I’ve decided to try to learn Ruby, and I’ve got a quick chuckle to share with you…

I got my hands on a copy of the Pragmatic Programmers "Programming Ruby". Here is the funniest snippet I’ve found so far:

"Because if itself is an expression, you can get really obscure with statements such as

if artist == "John Coltrane"
artist = "'Trane"
end unless use_nicknames == "no"

This path leads to the gates of madness."

He he he!
