See also this charming G+ account of a Pythoniza.

Especially remarks like "Perlprogrammiererkonzentrationslager" are revealing ...

    Since I don't know german, I'm going to read that as "Perl programmers drink concentrated lager"...which I don't have a problem with :-)

    So, just don't mess with my reality by telling me what it really means, 'kay?

      > So, just don't mess with my reality by telling me what it really means, 'kay?

      No!

      Just some hints how to deduce German words:

      "Lager" is - according to wiktinary - a cognate of the English word lair¹

      A place inhabited by a criminal or criminals, a superhero or a supervillain.

      Those concentrated supervillians !?! ;-)

      ¹)like with most of the 15000 other cognates not immediately obvious...

        well, if we are to be villains, we might as well be supervillains...

    Actually, "Perlprogrammiererkonzentrationslager" is not funny, even less so in German. It means "Perl Programmer Concentration Camp" and has bad and ugly overtones, especially in German.

    For certain Perl is not bondage & discipline or discrimination & xenophobia.

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
