 If C# and Java are our parents siblings and we're older by quite a bit then
them, then... that implies some sort of shady things in our family tree!
Maybe Grandpappy married a bombshell just out of high school and managed to
knock her up.

Then again, we did take some stuff from both. So maybe C# and Java are our
neighbors, and our sister had an affair with one of them and got knocked up,
and so we got the "logging" package and decorators and.


I fail at this analogy.

Ruby: Cousin
I can see this.
