Obscure programming languages

Dare talked about the lack of XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0 in the forthcoming .NET Framework 2.0, and linked to Mark Fussell, who linked to 99 Bottles of Beer in various languages (programming languages, that is).

I think Ian would particularly like the Common LISP one which is made up of a complicated format string - in the shape of a beer bottle!

Ian's told me before about the BrainF**k language, but I'd not seen it before. Anyway, it seems that other people have written languages for bovines (beer-drinking bovines) and simians (alcoholic apes), along similar principles.

I can't help thinking that the T-SQL version should be set-based, though...
