Funniest Module Name

Hi Monks,
What is the funniest module name you have ever seen?
This question on the lighter side was prompted by seeing today a new module on CPAN, "Getopt::WonderBra" . LOL :-)

    Make your pick on CPAN's 8729 modules distributions...

    "We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise." - Larry Wall.

      I did, the name is in the question description... :-)

      However, perhaps the question is too hard - after all, there aren't that many modules with amusing names outside the Acme:: namespace.
      So how about an amusing description? This little gem is from the No::Die module:
      "Tired of using eval as a straightjacket on modules that have as much interest in life as chronically depressed lemmings? Now there's a 24 hour suicide watch in No::Die. Only modules you permit to die may - the rest will just have to live with it."

      Funny :-)

    Why Bone::Easy ofcourse.

    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.

    Funniest I've seen used is: D'oh, which uses the perl4 style package separator.

    Ain’t a module, but also worth a mention: Highlander.
