Description: So you're wondering what holiday is today (of the major ones), and all you've got is a terminal and perl.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use LWP::Simple qw/ get /;
use HTML::TokeParser;
my $html = get('http://www.google.com/#googleholiday.pl');
my $p = HTML::TokeParser->new(\$html);
my $t = $p->get_tag('img');
die $t->[1]->{alt};

__END__
#the one liner version
#one
perl -MLWP::Simple -MHTML::TokeParser -e"die HTML::TokeParser->new(\(g
+et('http://www.google.com/#googleholiday.pl')))->get_tag('img')->[1]-
+>{alt};"

#two
perl -MLWP::Simple -MHTML::TokeParser -e'die HTML::TokeParser->new(\(g
+et("http://www.google.com/#googleholiday.pl")))->get_tag("img")->[1]-
+>{alt};'
