Very good! However, with

Low points for mentioning Larry Wall, Damian Conway, or Randal Schwartz

you've missed the point of the original. This should be something like:

mentioning "Christianson", "Cousins", or "Dominous".

(I could add "Brian D. Foy", but I don't want to go there... ;-)

Now, how about:
  • Arguing that Perl is a strongly typed language.
  • Arguing that Perl is a weakly typed language.
  • Claiming that Larry Wall doesn't truly understand Perl.
  • Arguing that Perl doesn't really have closures.
  • Arguing that lexical variables and/or namespaces actually decrease program robustness.
  • Claiming at least partial credit for the GRT.
  • Asserting for oneself the license to be rude to newbies due to one's seniority in the Perl community.
  • Claiming that Perl, being interpreted, is inherently less secure than languages such as Java.
