In the highly anticipated 5th season of Game of Thrones, Hodor will be noticeably absent. Now we know why. According to the appendices of George R.R. Martin's masterpiece, Hodor has been busy learning Android development.

Because a keyboard is no longer enough, Hodor has been hard at work on a calculator app (presumably because Lannisters are still counting their debts on abaci). Unfortunately, the gentle giant is about as good at math as he is quoting Shakespeare.

The half-man seems nonplussed.

Perhaps we shouldn't rush to judgment, though. Maybe if we could understand poor Walder, we'd learn a thing or two about math. This Hodor-based programming language (seriously) aims to make it easier for Hodors to write software in a natural, intuitive language, free from the complex syntax of languages that have multiple words in them.

Features:

  1. Hodor
  2. Hodor hodor hodor hodor
  3. Hodor hodor hodor
  4. Hodor HODOR hodor
  5. Hodor!

While Hodor may find this programming language useful, it may as well be Old Valyrian to the rest of us. Perhaps the lesson here is that we should all just stick to what we're good at. Hodor should keep carrying Bran around Zombieland, and developers should leave the comedy to professionals, instead of beating dead horses.
