And you just can't resist making it about you and your language.

"Hey Bart, did you hear? Nuclear war just broke out between Russia and 
Britain. Dozens of cities are aflame, tens of millions are dead across 
Europe, and a cloud of radioactive smoke is heading our way!"

"Yes, I know, my language has a built-in command that analyzes news 
reports collated from 800 news sites over the internet and tallies up the 
death tolls from wars and major disasters. I've been using it since 1973. 
Doesn't Python have the same?"
