My most common answer to a question about Perl is:
"I don't care if my Perl code is less 'readable' than you Java code. I got the job done and you... are fired."
"Perl code doesn't break just because someone used tabs for spaces."
"It doesn't have to be 'cool' and or 'the latest trend'. It pays my rent and puts food on my table. And it is a pretty save job..."
Sorry for any bad spelling, broken formatting and missing code examples. I broke my left hand and i'm doing the best i can here...
