This is what happens when you read too much Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" to your kids and spend too much time on PerlMonks.


Do you like use warnings and strict?

I do not like use warnings and strict.

Do you like them here or there?

I do not like them here or there?
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like use warnings and strict.
I will not obey your good coding practice edict.

Could you, would you in your code?
Would you, could you in your PerlMonks node?

I could not, would not in my code.
I would not, could not in my node.
Not in my program.
Not in my script.
Not a one-liner.
Not with shebang.

Say! At night?
Would you, could you at night?

Not at night.
Not in the mornings.
I do not use strict and warnings!

If you do not use warnings and strict.
Then upon your code bugs you'll inflict.

I will not use warnings and strict.
My freedom of coding style they will restrict.
I am too Lazy to declare with my.
I do not need it; I'll get by.

You do not like them.
So you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

If you will let me be,
I will try them.
You will see.

The stubborn hacker finally relents to trying them.

Say, I like warnings and strict!
I do! I like them a little bit.
I will use them in my code.
And I will use them in my node.
And in my programs.
And in my scripts.
warnings and strict are right for me.
They are so good, so good, you see.

    Heh. ISAGN.

    $ perl -Mstrict=seuss -e 'print $fox_in_sox;' I'm sad to say I'm sorry to report I haven't seen any sign of a variab +le of that sort at -e line 1.

    The cake is a lie.
    The cake is a lie.
    The cake is a lie.

    If I could, I would, I say,
    "++" this TWELVE TIMES, today!

    I would give this all twelve votes;
    I would keep this in my notes.
    I would leave it on the seat
    of every Perl cohort I meet.

    Thanks!!
