Defcon is actually played via the use of punch cards.

Actually Reverse Polish is a notation. Forth is a language that uses reverse polish. (Forth doesn't fit the joke so well, though does it?).

To answer the question Defcon is being done in C++ as far as I know. :)

Indeed, and so is Polish Notation. So, actually, that kills the joke more :D
