The blog post is fantastic.  This was extremely well thought-out.
 
Most of the comments are in iambic pentameter.
 
There is actually a stack-based programming language called Shakespeare that works something like the comments. You declare variables in the Dramatis Personae table at the top, add and remove them from the stack with "enter" and "exit", and increment and decrement their values through dialogue.

I'm gonna comment all my code like that from now on.
 
the shakespere language that you talk about sounds like lol-cats-script. :)

Gotta be some way to convert "Wherefore art thou" into SQL tho
 
"Wherefore" is actually more like "why", so if we wanted to get into that, we'd need to pull out the debugger...
 
That makes me smile in a way that most of my friends would mock me for.
