How to kill a dragon with various programming languages

Here is something funny(Programmer humor):

There’s a beautiful princess, prisoner in the highest tower of a castle, guarded by a mighty dragon, and a fearless knight must rescue her…

This is how each language would manage to rescue the princess from the hands of the dragon

  • .NET – Gets there, sees the idea of the Java developer and copies it. Tries to kill the dragon, but the monster eats him………………..
