Do slightly tongue-in-cheek blog posts confuse you?

Well, if you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, do I have a couple of links for you:

Introducing SPARQL: Querying the Semantic Web — where RDF suddenly reveals it actually has a use! Ruby the Rival — where Ruby takes its first monumental step to gaining mindshare... by FUDing other programming languages!
