Update: ack, ye downvoters, relax thy mouse buttons and thy index fingers, for it be a parody! Now read this and listen to these ("Bill Clinton" and "Suck a Camel's D__k" are both excellent choices) if you don't know who Wesley Willis is, or I cannot be held responsible for your failure to be entertained...

You are a programming god You are a coder to the max You are my good man You are the greatest Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall You gave me variables like $_ You make difficult things easy I like you a lot I like you well Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall You are on my side You are on my side with the interpreter You are a good guy in Jesusí name You really rock the camelís ass Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall Larry Wall

    I wish I could ++ this much much more.

    Oh, I laughed, I cried - um, you do realize that
    Wesley is going to shoot you with his BB gun now
    don't you?

      This is a risk I'm willing to take, for the good of the Perl community :)

    Ha. I used to work at a Web place in Bucktown, the Chicago neighborhood where Wesley used to be spotted most frequently. We were so Wesley-obsessed that we even wrote a Shockwave game called "Whip the Donkey's Ass". (I see that since I was last there, they apparently got some heat from animal-lovers online, and had to put a disclaimer saying that they were not really advocating animal cruelty. How funny.)

    Wesley Willis is da man! My fav song of his is "Cut that mullet" - give praise to the man who got himself out of homelessness.

    haha, thats awesome, ive met the man twice, headbutted him, and have various autographs. i couldn't see him writing anything like that, but you have done him justice.
      But he forgot the requisite "Rock Over London, Rock Over Chicago"!
