Hmm,think we should go all the way then. What about line numbers ? :-P

10 ? "hello world"
20 GOTO 10
30 REM make it stop

Bah!  If you're going to go that far, you might as well go the whole-hog:

        THE LESSER-KNOWN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES #10: SIMPLE

SIMPLE is an acronym for Sheer Idiot's Monopurpose Programming Language Environment.  This language, developed at the Hanover College for Technological Misfits, was designed to make it impossible to write code with errors in it.  The statements are, therefore, confined to BEGIN, END and STOP.  No matter how you arrange the statements, you can't make a syntax error.  Programs written in SIMPLE do nothing useful.  Thus they achieve the results of programs written in other languages without the tedious, frustrating process of testing and debugging.
