#include <jerk.h>
OK you miserable I.T. Educators, stop screwing around with your precious little “hello world” introductions in C. “hello world” is for testing the compiler. You know the friggin’ compiler works already. Sheesh! Engage with the customer. Here’s a better first program – students will actually enjoy this …

print "So pleased to see you. Say, is that a banana in your ...";
print "Righto - business first, please be entering the name of a jerk you know";
chomp($jerk = <stdin>);
print "That doesn't surprise me; I think $jerk is a jerk too!";
print "Now go ahead and enjoy the food.";

perl eats text for breakfast and any language with a chomp keyword has got to be good.
