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 :-)

    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.

    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 :-)

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

    Makeshifts last the longest.
