Truth in Parody

If you can't decide whether something is a conspiracy or a stuff-up, assume a stuff-up.

But often the conspiracy theory is much funnier, and just rings truer. Witness this spoof interview with Bjarne Stroustrup, creator of the C++ programming language. Snippet :
Bjarne: Well, one day, when I was sitting in my office, I thought of this little scheme, which would redress the balance a little. I thought 'I wonder what would happen, if there were a language so complicated, so difficult to learn, that nobody would ever be able to swamp the market with programmers?
