    MIPS cores are in a lot of stuff. The old MIPS instruction sets (of the 2000/3000 series era) were great because they were so easy to interpret. I wrote a simulated superscalar u-arch based on the MIPS R2000 ISA, which was fun because I could cross-compile to it with GCC.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Mate, you just out-geeked the internets. I'm staggered

    Well, it wasn't for fun... it was a coursework during my undergrad.

    ...although it turns out that it was fun!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
