"What's faster than C++, more concise than Perl, more regular than Python, more flexible than Ruby, more typeful than C#, more robust than Java, and has absolutely nothing in common with PHP? It's Haskell!"
I might add "easier to write unreadable code in than Perl, slower and more painful to compile than C++" to the list myself, but it's a reasonably good precis.
