For the joke, I was going to use the soundtrack from the RoR movie,
but it would kill the opportunity to show off the really cool Squeak
stuff, like the debugger and halos.

I blame the spelling mistakes on Java.  After a full day of Java, my
brain is mush from excessively beating my head against wall.

I did something like that a while back (almost a year).  It could use
an update with some audio.  It is much easier to communicate this
stuff with a movie rather than prose.  The goal was to get a developer
from zero to writing a class in as short amount of time as possible. 
It could be extended to cover more aspects of the environment.
