“Somebody somewhere has got to be high”

PHP programmers: did you know that the name of your favourite language actually stands for Pot Head Pixies? All starts to make a bit more sense now, eh?

    Hi Gimbo.

    As far as I knew, PHP stands for PHP Hyptertext Preprocessor. And, yes, I know its recursive. I wouldn’t think about it for too long, if where you.

    Thanks G — although I did know that! I used to do some PHP programming back in my Frontier days, but gladly soon moved onto better things.

    Other great recursive acryonyms of our time of course include GNU (GNU’s Not Unix) and HURD which is actually co-recursive. Show offs!
