Well, some people call Windows a boot virus... so
I suppose Python could be regarded as a programmer's
brain virus...

Name:           Python
Preferred Host: Perl, C, C++, PHP, sh, csh programmers
Symptoms:       The host's programs suddenly become shorter,
                 more readable and easier to maintain.
Spread By:      Usenet/email contact, word of mouth
Treatment:      No effective treatment known. Once infected,
                 the host will never willingly use any other
                 programming language.
