COBOL fingers
Jump to user comments
/koh'bol fing'grz/ Reported from Sweden, a (hypothetical)
disease one might get from coding in COBOL. The language
requires code verbose beyond all reason (see candygrammar);
thus it is alleged that programming too much in COBOL causes
one's fingers to wear down to stubs by the endless typing.
