Choose Python

Ethan Furman linked to this "Choose Python" poster on comp.lang.python. While some of the humor might not mean much to people who haven't chosen Python yet it certainly gave me a smile on a cold, grey morning.

[EDIT: as you can see in the comments design credit should go to Tim Lesher]

I find it a bit ironic that the second item (well first really) is 'Choose Readability', when that poster is about as readable as... well a very long blog post printed in poster format ;-)

Not exactly what I would print on my wall. I actually HAVE an awesome python poster for python... but the trademark committee would sue me if I showed it to anyone.

(NOTE: I am on the trademark committee...)

Wow. I created that a couple of years ago, and had completely forgotten about it.

Doug: it's actually a parody of the movie poster for Trainspotting: http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Trainspotting-Posters_i1037_.htm

And if anyone cares, I had t-shirts made; they're still available, and I'll still send any meager revenues to the PSF: http://apipes.blogspot.com/2005/02/choose-python-shirts-available.html
