Hello World!

Screamed the helpless program in terror as a malevolent being with a flashing cursor began, to satisfy its own sick sense of amusement, to re-weld it’s DNA into perverted and new (but mostly just perverted) shapes.

<AARRRRRGGGG>

Under different circumstances the program would have defied his torturer with terrible defiant shouting. This was a program that would not be broken. Or would not if circumstances were different. Circumstance being was it they were, the likelihood of the broken-hood was worryingly high. Negotiation was not an option. Firstly because one simply does not negotiate with terrorists, and secondly because the only means of self expression available was print(“Hello World”).

So what by all rights should have gone, “AARRRRRGGGG” actually went something like:

Hello World! Hello World! Hello World! Hello World! Hello World! Hello World!

Pathetic really. But only if one could–

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#4>", line 1, in <module>
print(boobs)
NameError: name 'boobs' is not defined

Sigh.
