Ninety Nine Bottles Of Beer On The Wall

From DilBert: A bunch of big-brained scientific types are on a bus singing...
"Infinite number of beers on the wall,
infinite number of beers.
You take one down and pass it around...
Infinite number of beers on the wall!"
<repeats ;->
After a while, the bus driver gets sick of it and yells that they'll never to get to zero.


NinetyNineBottlesOfBeerOnTheWallInManyLanguages?:

Several pages exist that list programs in incredibly and impressively large numbers of languages that emit the words to the song:
  #define TakeOneDown(n) n--
  for (BottlesOfBeer = 99; BottlesOfBeer > 0; TakeOneDown(BottlesOfBeer))
  {
      PassItAround();
  }
or perhaps
  : BOTTLESOFBEER  100 0 DO 99 I - PASSAROUND LOOP ;
See ForthFlames for a complete implementation. This can even be done in TuringTarpits: see SnuspLanguage.
