    I always figured Perl more of a 'White Cider'.
    Cheap, effective, and with a taste not unlike champagne!

    Let's try a couple more

    • Ruby - light, sweet, fruity
    • C# - fat, crisp, chewy (Bizarre. Doesn't this sound like ...) but with bad finish
    • Python - full-bodied, simple, but a bit honest
    • PHP - Mad Dog 20/20 ('nuff said)
