Differences Between Lisps

Things that are said on #emacs should stay on #emacs but this is a diamond:

10:04 forcer: Scheme is for when you want to learn about designing
               and writing programming languages, interpreters and
               compilers. Emacs Lisp is for when you want to write
               something you can actually use in your daily
               life. Common Lisp is for when you want to discuss
               somewhere how everyone else is doing it wrong.
10:05 [forcer runs *fast*.]
10:05 aidalgol: HAHAHAHA!
10:05 nicferrier: clojure is for when you want to do with lisp with 
               people who will like you.
10:07 forcer: tali713: Good jokes have a true core and just
               exaggerate it too much :-]
