...and now for something completely off-topic...

The following is an interesting comparison of Python, Perl and Tcl:

Tcl -- It is short (only three letters) and does a suprising amount
   given that it doesn't have a vowel.  It can be pronounced
   "Tickle", which is a command.

Perl -- Bigger and has a vowel.  However you'll note that it isn't
   a common english word; you'll have to know what you're doing to
   use it, especially with spell-checkers which otherwise complain
   that it looks like noise.

Python -- This is a Real English Word (honest, look it up!) that
   happens to refer to a type of snake, which you'll notice is an
   object.  With the two vowels, python is quite readable.
