Beatnik - In Beatnik, programs are written in words, but “the function of a particular word--say, brains, or aunts--is determined by the score one would receive for playing that word in Scrabble. Thus, “hello” gets us 8 points, and so on.”

 

Sample program that prints “Hi” to the screen (other variations are possible, as long as each word is replaced with one that has the equivalent Scrabble-score):

 

Baa, badassed areas!
Jarheads' arses
queasy nude adverbs!
Dare address abase adder? *bares baser dadas* HA!
Equalize, add bezique, bra emblaze.
He (quezal), aeons liable. Label lilac "bulla," ocean sauce!
Ends, addends,
duodena sounded amends.

 

Shakespeare - whoah.
