I just want to siiiing!

by Petruchio (Vicar)
on Nov 22, 2000 at 17:42 UTC ( #42917=poem: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Petruchio:
   Well, as some of you know, I've been working for a 
   hospital lately... it's not bad, I guess. I'm making 
   templates out of the html that this fellow generated 
   with one of those GUI web page builders. And there's 
   a bunch of JavaScript involved, too, which is what I 
   wanted to talk to you about. I've had some insights 
   which I thought might be of interest to...
     
   Oh! dash it all! I never wanted to do any of this! I 
   never wanted to write JavaScript, to toil away at web 
   pages... Bah! I wanted to be... 
     
   A PERL HACKER! Hopping from module to module, as they 
   drift down the Information Superhighway... crafting 
   statements... using map instead of for loops... 
   Ah, the Typeglob! The Regular Expression!
   The mighty Closure! The plucky little Tie!  
   The strange Object that was kind of an afterthought 
   and doesn't hide data, but works really well anyway!
   With my trusty camel at my side, we'd sing! SING!
     
   Oh, I'm a Perl Hack, and I'm okay...  
   I hack all night, and I sleep all day!  
     
Monks:
   He's a Perl Hack, and he's okay, 
   He hacks all night and he sleeps all day!  

Petruchio:     
   I write my code, I take lunch breaks, 
   I go to the Monastery!  
   Sometimes I post my homework, 
   And merlyn yells at me!  
     
Monks:
   He writes his code, he takes lunch breaks, 
   He goes to the Monastery!  
   Sometimes he posts his homework, 
   And merlyn yells at... him.  
     
All:
   He's a Perl Hack, and he's okay, 
   He hacks all night and he sleeps all day!  

Petruchio:
   I debug code, I call in sick, 
   I stay home and play Doom!  
   I write annoying letters 
   About MonkMail to vroom!  
     
Monks:
   He debugs code, he calls in sick, 
   He stays home and plays Doom!  
   He writes annoying letters 
   About MonkMail to vroom!  
     
All:
   He's a Perl Hack, and he's okay, 
   He hacks all night and he sleeps all day!  

Petruchio:
   I don't use strict, I wear a dress, 
   With sequins in the hem!  
   I wish I'd been a girlie, 
   Just like old AgentM!  
     
Monks:
   He... doesn't... use strict?!?  
   Bloody imbecile... $Petruchio--;...


I trust I'll be back on speaking terms with AgentM one of these days... ;-)

    As someone with a healthy respect for Monty Python, this had me rolling on the floor. Top notch, Petruchio.
