...Perl, of course! Here follows the Mr Sparkle commercial from the Simpsons episode In Marge We Trust, translated to Perl. I don't suggest you try running it. :)

JapaneseBusinessman->say("Oh, hello, American investor."); JapaneseBusinessman->say("I see you are interested in distributing Mr. + Sparkle in you home prefecture."); JapaneseBusinessman->say("You have chosen wisely. But please -- don't +believe me. Observe this commercial."); MrSparkle->summon('from box'); MrSparkle->float('around room') while (sparkles_fly()); MrSparkle->say(sub { $i = disrespectful($dirt), can($you, see("that I am serious?")); }); MrSparkle->bounce(keys %BabysXylophone); @women = TrioOfDancingWomen->new(location => 'ocean floor'); MrSparkle->say(sub { out(my $way, @you), $this = not $place for @loafers; join('me') or die; can($you, "do any ", `less`, "?"); }); @women->say(sub { ($what_a) = grep { /brave/ } @corporate_logos; I->accept(CHALLENGE, MR_SPARKLE); }); $women[1]->say("Awesome power!"); MrSparkle->transform(@women, SumoWrestler); Reporter->say($two_headed_cow, sub { $what = y/our/plans/ for (@summer_vacation, '?'); $two_headed_cow->shatter('upon seeing', MrSparkle); @corporate_logos->die('by being sucked into a black hole'), MrSparkle- +>survive; Announcer->say(sub { for (@lucky_best_wash) { use MrSparkle; } });

    OMG, I was literally laughing with tears in my eyes. This is the funniest code I've seen in years...
    MrSparkle->say(sub { out(my $way, @you), $this = not $place for @loafers; join('me') or die; can($you, "do any ", `less`, "?"); });

    God, I love the Simpsons. Does anyone remember when Homer was meaner (rather than a simple idiot)? It's sad|interesting|revealing to watch the evolution of the Simpsons over the years. How I miss their first season (1990?), sitting in my room at Smith hall at Ga Tech, watching the Simpsons and drinking my Frosted Orange from the Varsity.

    Ahh, the Simpsons. Still funny after all these years, even the code is funny.

    -- Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of defyance.

    Look Marge, a poem! Woohoo! And it is in perl... mmmm... peeeerl...

    Love the Simpsons, in fact I'm almost a compulsive recorder of episodes when they are aired. :) This is fun - I like it very much (++).

    You have moved into a dark place.
    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

    You are the greatest coder ever.
    In dictionaries and online searches your visage should be embalzoned next to the word hacker.
    I wish to join your cult or die! Can you see I am serious?
    There's more than one way to do it, but only some of them actually work.
