I'm little surprised I did not see the Hacker's Jargon's version of fun vs. disciplined Language list.
The fun category goes as "Languages Of Choice"(LOC). The disciplined category goes as "bondage-and-discipline"(B&D). They included C, Perl, Python, Java and LISP for LOC and Pascal, Ada, APL, or Prolog for B&D. And worst than B&D is COBOL. A love for Fortran and Assembler shows that one is a real programmer. But for me, APL was fun and my first language. The only interesting thing about PASCAL was that it introduced me to Data Structures. The Hackers associate APL with B&D. There's no discipline at all. You can't read it. You throw cryptic symbols together until you see the results you want then store it in a user defined function. I would put LISP in the B&D category and then say they wanted it to be fun and created JavaScript. I do mostly C++ so I have not done much with C#. But if you like C# the most, that's cool.
