    I've just listened to the COBOL one. It was great, but I think a little harsh. I always thought that COBOL was quite nice to work with for certain data handling tasks involving fixed length input fields. Admittedly it is awful to use for tasks that it wasn't designed for but then that is true of taking a knife from the drawer and using it as a screwdriver. You can do it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
