"why's (poignant) guide to ruby" is the best language intro EVER

I just started taking a look at the programming language Ruby a few days ago -- it's become big enough (or has loud enough fanbois) to get my attention. From what I've seen it actually looks pretty good, I'm going to work at it for a while.

Anyways, I was looking for a good introduction to the language. Any oh boy did I find it, in "why's (poignant) guide to ruby". It's not just a plain-English, straightforward, fantastic introduction to Ruby. It is also by far the most entertaining technical writing I have ever read. So funny! I was hooked from the beginning page, and the cartoon foxes are absolutely killing me.

If the language is half as fun as this introduction, I'll probably switch over to it exclusively, dynamic typing and all.
