Deadfish~ in Python

So, apparently implementing the joke programming language Deadfish in FORTRAN77 wasn’t enough of a futile exercise, I also found a page about the as-yet-unimplemented language Deadfish~, which is a superset of Deadfish and is similarly frustratingly useless, adding an amusingly unusable implementation of looping and conditionals, as well as the ability to print out “Hello, World!” with a single keypress.

So, naturally, I wrote an interpreter for Python, which is up on github here. Please, please, never try to use it for anything.
