|It seems like it might be a good idea to come up with a free and open mascot for Perl
Yes, it seems that way, doesn't it... But as Abigail pointed out, who will bell the cat, and how?
If it were as simple as just coming up with an idea, we'd be done already -- "hey, let's use a drawing of a pearl inside an oyster," and it's over.
But coming up with something that everyone is going to adopt requires more social engineering than a bunch of people randomly spouting ideas.
Short of that, use the camel, with the constraints that exist, or just write things in text and leave the visual associations up to people's imaginations.
