Greenspun's Tenth Rule of Programming

“Any sufficiently complicated C or Fortran program contains an ad-hoc, informally-specified bug-ridden slow implementation of half of Common Lisp.”

This quote is attributed to Philip Greenspun. Lately it seems someone got confused and attributed it to someone else and I'm seeing the misattribution over and over.
