How about "Perl Brothel"?

With apologies to sgt, one could still learn Perl in a 'Disciplined' way. Of course, mens sana in corpore sano would go right out the window.

Very very funny, and I would have certainly included it in the list, had I thought of it - or had anyone suggested it. Indeed as a funny option it is certainly worth a vote, but more seriously a brothel is associated, and for good reasons, with a very bad reputation: so I'm sure that $Larry would not approve. He chose the name Perl in the first place because it should have been "Pearl" - something polished and clean and beautiful: he claims that the name could never have hinted to something aggressive or dirty or violent.
