Java is a cargo ship. It’s very bulky. It’s very enterprise~y. Though it can also carry a lot of weight. Will carry a project, but not very fun to drive.

PHP is a bamboo raft. A series of hacks held together by string. Still keeps afloat though.

C is a nuclear submarine. The instructions are probably in a foreign language, but all of the hardware itself is optimized for performance.
