So, did the joke inspire the real Parrot or was the idea of a multi-language virtual machine already being worked on?

    I don't think the joke made people think "actually, that's want we really need for Perl 6". But once someone came up with the idea of multi-language virtual machine it didn't take long for someone to remember the joke and realise that the VM had to be called Parrot.
