The problem is that it's a one-shot joke, and therefore pretty much not funny at all after you see it once.

I'd gently suggest that this boilerplate response is more useful:

It looks like the CPAN module X can solve the problem you have (see [c +pan://X]). I found this via http://search.cpan.org, by entering "search term". Here's how you could use it:
And then invest the time in showing how that module would solve the problem, even if it's just an outline of what subs or methods you'd use in doing so. This is a much more useful answer to the question, as it gently prods the original poster in the direction of actually trying your suggestion, and tells them that search.cpan.org is a good first place to go when looking for something.

I don't want to discourage people from responding to posts - but I do want to discourage them from taking cheap shots at the querents, and the implication of the "let me X that for you" sites is "Hey, you're stupid. You didn't search first", as opposed to "let me give you a pointer to something that will help".
