Sorry, too late but this is nothing but the truth about this story, as i've been told by Michael H. Kenyon.

The original code was:

#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI qw/:standard/; print header, start_html('We are only in it for the money'), h1('hello + world'), end_html;

A little later someone unknown changed this snippet to h1('Like').

Mark then had the idea to turn the headline into a hyperlink pointing to somewhere.

Then the code was converted to PHP™ and then to C++™ by some unknown genius from India.

As easily can be seen Perl™ once again was the root of all eval.

Update: And it's guaranteed that this post is written in pure Denglisch™.

I hope this helps and best regards, Karl
