Though not strictly a module, more a pragma, use strict; is still by far my favorite :).
DBI (you should make all modules link to CPAN), is mostly hidden behind some other module in our development environment. So next to strict, in order of favorite-ness, that would be warnings, Getopt::Long, Data::Peek, Text::CSV_XS, DBI, DBD::Pg, DBD::SQLite, DBD::Unify, DBD::CSV, autodie (likely to rise in this order), JSON, WWW::Mechanize, HTML::TreeBuilder, XML::Simple to name just a few.
Use two parentheses: (Like this: :) )
Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)
Reverse direction of the smiley: (Like this: (: )
Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
