in reply to New mascot for Perl

Here's an idea. I created it from a stolen image of a pearl, in MS Paint. The coloring could be better, and it needs anti-aliasing, etc, but it's better than someone else's camel.

And I just found someone elses idea, based on the same obvious idea. http://pjtsalina.codigolivre.org.br/img/perl/perl-logo0.jpg

    I'm sorry but thats pretty lame for a mascot.
    --- [from wn] --- mascot n : a person or animal that is adopted by a team or other group as a symbolic figure

    MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
    ** The third rule of perl club is a statement of fact: pod is sexy.

      The abstract of rfc 343 mainly speaks of a "symbol": "Perl has no common symbol usable by the public at large to state to the world "I am a Perl Programmer, and D**n Proud Of It!" Anyway, I think O'Reilly might have the rights to animals representing computer technology stuff in general. If it really must be an animal, I agree with those old responses to rfc 343 and say it should be the camel.

      Maybe we could dispute the trademark restrictions that O'Reilly is claiming. The camel has come to represent Perl as much as O'Reilly's Perl book.

      If you need a non-camel animal, just put an oyster in the background of my Perl logo.

        Yeah, but only because of the book.
