LinkedList NYC

Issue #83 - October 27, 2012

Hi Listheads,

We were working on another joke issue, but this morning we decided it was a bit mean-spirited. Instead, this week's issue is a programming contest! Here's the deal:

Write a program that prints the text "LinkedList NYC". For example, you could write the following in Python:

print "LinkedList NYC"

But that wouldn't be much fun. The goal is to do it in the most inventive way. Here's a slightly more interesting version in Bash:

curl -s | sed -n 's/ *<h1>\(.*\)<\/h1>/\1/p'

Bonus points if your code contains a pun, is self-referential, or is particularly clever or elegant. It can be as long or short as you like.

The winner will get five pints of ice cream delivered to his or her door by the List itself [Seriously! -Ed.]. Note: You must live within the five boroughs or an area served by the PATH train to be eligible for delivery.

Your program must:

Peace out, cub scouts.
