Haskell is cooler, because it's Lisp with expressive syntax, compilation, pure functionality (as in functions, not as in working), and a very good static type system.
I wrote a lexer from scratch in Haskell in 15 lines, and it was only that long because I pressed enter a bunch to make it more readable. And it would have been extremely easy to expand or modify it.
And how about we start using the Snark
? This is how you use it.~
