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

pretty lame for a mascot

    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.

[holli]: There are Anti Vaxxer weeks at IKEA.
[Corion]: Of course, it's a 20% cut in the money I receive, while the work doesn't necessarily reduce at all, but my approach is to make the work take longer instead of fitting 5 days worth of work into 4
[holli]: 50% off all children coffins.
[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
