The PHPClasses.org site has posted a humorous look at the PHP language with several reasons why PHP is a "hobbit" (a Lord of the Rings series reference):
Sometime ago a user of the Quora site asked a question if there was a language war, which languages you support and why. Another user gave a very creative response comparing programming languages with characters of the Lord of the Rings story of JRR Tolkien.
There's six reasons listed in the post:
- PHP is Scripted C
- PHP is not Teaming with C++ Evil
- PHP is Not particularly Beautiful but it is Very Useful
- PHP is Not the Fastest Language to Execute but is Agile
- PHP Success Causes the Envy of Others
