Lisp featured in xkcd, again

xkcd has mentioned Lisp before, but smug Lisp weenies will probably find this one funnier. As a bonus for Lispers who like to waste time playing Nethack — and there are quite a few, myself included — this comic includes a funny reference to the game, hah.

It could be a reference to Nethack too, but it *certainly* is a reference to Star Wars. (Remember? Obi-wan says the light saber is an elegant weapon, "for a more civilized age").

I think I've been using the GNOME interface for Nethack for too long, so I didn't relate the parentheses to Nethack... :-)

Rogue used ) symbol for weapons way before nethack. It is a better game, too.
