Some Perlie Clerihews for your amusement (I hope) :)
Larry Wall (to some, he's Mister) Wrote an Eclectic Rubbish Lister "When will it be finished?" was the question, rhetorical, To which he replied "when it gets Pathological" Randal Schwartz, (or merlyn) Is handy if it's Perl you're Learnin', He'll answer a question most solemn, Or just point to the relevant column. The Damian (not the one fom the Omen), let the world write Perl in Roman, Was it evil? Was it good? I don't know, but *I'd* do it if I could.
and a final two-liner - not strictly a clerihew, but I couldn't resist...
Mark Jason Dominus, Knows a lot more perl than some-of-us.
Cheers, Ben.

    Will this make the two-liner a Clerihew?
    He uses Perl to impress women, and Memoize to cache results in.

      Nice...I'd update the node, but that'd be stealing the credit {g}

      Or maybe we could turn it into a little competition... more offerings, anyone? See if we can get MJD to judge :)

[Corion]: Ugh - the FSF wants to merge Magit into Emacs (or rewrite Magit). It seems they haven't learned from Perl+CPAN that not having things in core is good.
