Or Intercal, although it's not in the repos.

Which reminds me of my favorite funny line in an RPM description, on Fedora now:
[root at localhost ~]# rpm -qi moserial
Name        : moserial                     Relocations: (not relocatable)

Description :
Moserial is a clean, friendly gtk-based serial terminal for the gnome
desktop. It is written in Vala for extra goodness.

:-O (!!??!?!?!?)  And while moserial (and cutecom) have their definite uses (I have used both), to have the language it's written in as part of the description beggars the imagination....
