Actually, "Perlprogrammiererkonzentrationslager" is not funny, even less so in German. It means "Perl Programmer Concentration Camp" and has bad and ugly overtones, especially in German.
For certain Perl is not bondage & discipline or discrimination & xenophobia.
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
