Since when is OMGROFL or LOLCode a programming language? Is parts of this quiz meant to be a joke? :huh:

 

Several of the languages included in the quiz, including the two you mentioned, were designed as a joke - not serious programming languages. If you had any question that the quiz was not intended to be completely serious, I think the inclusion of "Shakespeare" as a programming language is a dead give-away.

Oh, okay :)
Also never saw the "Shakespeare" one when answering the questions.

That joke of a language is Turing-complete, thank you very much ;)

 

Several compilers and interpreters exist for those languages.
