    Hmm... I'd scored that Haiku as 5-7-5, but hadn't considered that there might be regional pronounciations of "Perl".

    Purl - for some set of regions

    Purr-uhl - for some other regions

    This might be a worthy question for the voting booth. (With an automatic -10XP for anyone who chooses "Cowboy Neal".)

      Is there an official way to pronounce Perl, but is it the double consonant way, or single consonant?

      I agree that this could be a very possible question for the voting booth :-D.

      I am sure someone would vote for Cowboy Neal...
