Discussion on: Which mainstream programming language has the ugliest syntax?

I was literally searching on Google “Why Ruby is so ugly?” when this article appeared on the list. “puts” in Brazilian Portuguese is a slang for “oh, fuck!”, or when something was messed up. And when I saw a code example with:

say = ‘hello’
5.times { puts say }

I only could think what kind of psychopathy is that.
