I admit, the idea is pretty simple and maybe the thing is
a bit cheesy ... however, it looks pretty weird which
made me decide it was worthwile posting. I hope it proves
me right ;-)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict;; ;; ;;;;;; ;; open A,$0;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;push @_,$_ while <A>;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; print chr( y/;/;/ -3<0? ord' ':y/;// + ord '^' ) foreach "@_" =~/;[;\s]+/g ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;; ;;;;;; ;; push @_,$_;; push@_,$_;;; push @_,$_;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;push @_,$_ ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;push @_ ,$_;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;push@_,$_;; ;;;;;;;;push @_,$_;;;;;;; push @_,$_;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;push@_ ,$_;;push@_, $_;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;push @_,$_;;;;;;; push@_,$_;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;push @_ ,$_;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;push@_, $_;;push @_,$_;;; ;;; ;;;; push @_ , $_ ;;; push @_, $_ ;;;;; push @_, $_;;;;;; ;;; ;;;; push @_, $_;;;;;; ;push@_, $_;push @_,"\n"; ;;;;;;; ;;;;;;; ;;; ;; print pop@_

After posting this, I decided that it might look a bit
better when i'd turn the shape from a square to a couple
of semi-colons ... so that's exactly what I did
I'm terribly sorry for the guys who voted for it and who
think it became a piece of crap now ;-)

    I actually almost posted something to the effect of "at least it isn't shaped into a giant ASCII semicolon." :) Very good effort, however. s/;;+/;/g; helps to decode this a bit. :)
