Today I learned that the “~>” operator used in Gemfiles is called “twiddle wakka”: https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems/pull/123 , and used to be called “spermy operator”.
My day, it is made 😀

Isn’t that just grand? 😀 It’s been quite a while (it might be 15 years or so) since I stumbled upon this little unusual programming language from Japan, which I soon fell in love with.
