What would you put on a Perl mug?by jarich (Curate)

I've long been a fan of the vi mug although I've never had one of my own. Who wouldn't want such a cool mug, even after you've already learned everything it covers?
As such I've been very excited about the opportunity I currently have, which allows me to create my very own mug design for Perl Training Australia. I've decided that I want the mug to be valuable to the conference attendees who get one. I want it to be almost as cool as the vi mug and yet still show off our logo.
I've had a good look at Juerd's Perl cheat sheet, erudil's regex quick reference and a few other similar documents. There's no way I can put all of any of those onto a itty bitty "can" mug. So what should I include?
I must say I've been leaning towards a regular expression mug in the hopes that it has some use to the non-Perl programmers at the conference. If the mug is cool enough then people might take it into work with them and thus increase the chance of their managers hearing about us.
My current design can be found here. What would you add or replace? What would you consider cool on a mug?
UPDATE (24 Nov)
The artwork has gone to the printers and with luck the mugs will arrive in the next day or so. The final version should look something like it does in the below picture.http://perltraining.com.au/~jarich/mug.jpg
