I had no idea how people would react to this smutty poem. Which was part of the fun. I'd like to apologize to jdporter and others who were offended by it.

In my defense, I'd like to point out that one of the first Perl poems ever written, Black Perl, was presented in The Camel "without comment, merely to show how disgusting the metaphors of a typical programming language really are". Should such debauchery as:

kill the next sacrifice, each sacrifice, wait, redo ritual until "all the spirits are pleased"; do it ("as they say"). do it(*everyone***must***participate***in***forbidden**s*e*x*).
take the blame for encouraging poor taste in Perl poets that follow? Or is this sort of unfortunate verse inevitable in a language with built-ins: sin, kill, die, chop, crypt, ... and so on?

[Discipulus]: if i had to go to psycho i need to ask why i always end with over complex datastructure: now i have an HoHoAoH in my object
[Discipulus]: i will need to handle by reference later on
[Eily]: kinda sounds like father Christmas is late
[hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
Eily notes also
[hippo]: So if you don't drink as much milk and not as often you are said to drink less milk on fewer days. Confusing, eh?
[Eily]: same as many/much, few/little
