[Geekery alert -- turn back now!]

From the latest MSDN Flash:

Join Chris, Ari, Visual Bucky, the VB Rapper, and Head in the Box as we take a look at building Windows-based applications in Visual Basic .NET.

"Visual Bucky, the VB Rapper"? They're trying to make Visual Basic hip?

My head hurts just from brushing against the concept of "the VB Rapper". Doesn't this qualify as marketing to kids? I thought trying to sell harmful products to children was supposed to be illegal...

Okay, okay -- VB doesn't suck as horrifically as it used to. Still not a language I would willingly let any relative of mine near, though...
