BASIC with line numbers. not the real thing. fun because i was a kid.

6502 assembly, the best

Turbo Pascal. logical. everything falls into it's place easy. you don't forget it. it was two languages, Pascal and Assembly (x86) that you could mix at will. that tripled fun.

C++, the silver bullet. build your own first class data types. copy constructors, virtual destructors, assignment overloading... all very very fun.

about year 2k i started to notice languages as a whole package. the language and the people who use it. most C++ users were heavy into MFC and they would shrug at any mention of WPARAM and the message loop. most Pascal programmers start to talk about linked lists when you mention pointers. dude?

i switched to C. more fun than Pascal, but i long for less strict data typing.

some languages i didn't chose, i had to work with. VB was OK, PHP does the job, but i only like JavaScript (without the DOM).

JavaScript is fun, especially everything that is different than Java.

Java is/was the epitome of chauvinism. that is not fun. that is lame.

Lua is fun.

i must learn Perl, that should be super fun. all the languages that don't have class and morale.
