Why would you want an arab democracy in Portugal?

[OT] Explaining a failed joke; ignore

    The Arabs lost control of Portugal quite a few hundreds year ago. :-)

    I'll explain, even tough you probably understood the joke and tried to be funny, too. :-)

    US declared war against Spain using as excuse that a ship exploded in a harbor (in Cuba, I think). Noone still knows why the ship exploded.

    Considering WMDs etc, I joked that a Portugese man-o-war burning a US citizen would result in Portugal being bombed.

    I had the disclaimer, because I consider Chomsky as reliable as Fox News; as much religion as Vi-believers (Emacs lovers are of course just using reason). But this is totally off topic.

      hmmm... looks like I shoulda put a ;) or a </joke> at the end of my post.

[Eily]: I just wrote a oneliner to solve a (non perl) colleague's problem, and it worked on the first try
[Eily]: and he wasn't impressed
1nickt adds gingersnaps to the platter on the sideboard.
[Eily]: sure it was a pretty standard one liner (of the $h{$1} = $2 if /regex/; END { pp \%h; } variety), but he's not supposed to know that!
[Eily]: what's the point of writing perl if people aren't impressed :P
[sierpinski]: Haha
