Erlang is WTF?

As you know from a recent post, I am not into language bashing but I recently came across a witty one liner that sort of resonated with me: "C is fast, Ruby is beautiful and Erlang is WTF?" I might substitute a functional language (like Lisp or Haskel for Ruby) but the basic message is a valid one. Erlang as some cool ideas but they are packaged into a slow and rather ugly (syntactically) implementation.
