PHPClasses.org:
6 Reasons Why PHP is a Hobbit
February 18, 2013 @ 13:03:26

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
  • JavaScript could be a Hobbit too but Asynchronous Programming is a Hell
  • PHP Success Causes the Envy of Others

If you're interested to see the thread where the idea for this post came from, you can read it here on Quora.
