Spending sometime on the net, i came across this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainfuck
At first, the name itself was a turn off, but as I read it, it seemed to be a valid language, [Though I didnt understand most of it]
What do you guys think ?

The Wikipedia says it:
It is a Turing tarpit, designed to challenge and amuse programmers, and is not suitable for practical use.

It's not a serious programming language that anyone uses.

this is the one in Chef for Fibonacci : http://www.dangermouse.net/esoteric/chef_fib.html

Design principles:
  • Program recipes should not only generate valid output, but be easy to prepare and delicious.
  • Recipes may appeal to cooks with different budgets.
  • Recipes will be metric, but may use traditional cooking measures such as cups and tablespoons
