“If you wrote a screenplay about coffee, would it be a JavaScript?”

"JavaScript” is not a screenplay about coffee, but there are many puns. “Javascript (which I thought was a screenplay about coffee)” was posted on the newsgroup Google Groups: rec.arts.mystery on April 25, 2002.

“If you wrote a screenplay about coffee, would it be a JavaScript?” was posted on Twitter on December 31, 2014.


Wikipedia: JavaScript
JavaScript (/ˈdʒɑːvəˌskrɪpt/), often abbreviated as “JS”, is a high-level, dynamic, untyped, and interpreted run-time language. It has been standardized in the ECMAScript language specification. Alongside HTML and CSS, JavaScript is one of the three core technologies of World Wide Web content production; the majority of websites employ it, and all modern Web browsers support it without the need for plug-ins. JavaScript is prototype-based with first-class functions, making it a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles. It has an API for working with text, arrays, dates and regular expressions, but does not include any I/O, such as networking, storage, or graphics facilities, relying for these upon the host environment in which it is embedded.

If, on the other hand, you think JavaScript is a screenplay about coffee, stick with the prefab bookmarklets.
