Did you know that Parrot has a simple FORTH implementation inside of it? Every developer eventually realizes that the thing his favorite language needs is another language embedded inside of it. Some people discover this sooner than others.

Update: Some people think I've misread Dan's post. They think FORTH is simply one of the languages implemented in Parrot. But what I think he's doing is implementing complex Parrot instructions as FORTH, since doing so in FORTH is so low cost (for example: you don't pay anything for a subroutine call beyond the jump cost).
