    How about "everything from pirates to careebian" ?
    But what about if the wording of the OP changes? Then your solution would no longer be useful.

      Correct! He would need to change the regular expression. But then I was not completely serious in my reply... (even though it works!)

      One could also use variables in the regex like /($from.*$to)/.
