As someone else said, the fun language is the one I'm using at the moment.

In order of learning, my most fun languages are:

BASIC
6502 assembly
EDIT: Z80 assembly
Turbo Pascal, MS Pascal
Fortran
8088 assembly
C
6809 assembly
80286 assembly
C++
80386+ (flat mode) assembly
C#
Java

I include different generations of the 80x86 family because each of them has different challenges for writing optimized code.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
