If we were voting on the cleverest April Fool's joke from those lists, I would pick the one about jJava!

I must say that JavaRebel's screencast is one of the funniest... do not use Scala, it will bring doom to our society, it is the tool of the Devil^H^H

Thanks! It was great fun making it! However it's not the tool of the devil, but our future digital overlords :P
