The recent thread about Ruby and some aspects of it's coding style reminded me of this fascinating paper from Bjarne Stroustrup on generalizing the operator overloading functionally currently offered by C++.

Yeah it starts off very convincingly. I'd been told it was an April Fools before reading it, I wonder how long I would have been fooled for otherwise embarassed

P.S. my smilie at the end holds the url to Bjarne's webpage which acknowledges the joke.
