in reply to Who is Perl? (Anthropomorphizing Everything)

I see Perl as Garth (Wayne's World). The geeky kid who knows how to fix everything, the crazy inventor. The fashion sense is about 5 years behind, but everything he does works. (Hmmm Buzzword compliance or working code.... which do I want??)

As a side note Dana Carvey based Garth off of his brother Brad's personality - he was a geeky kid who fixed everything - He ended up developing the Video Toaster (for all you old Amiga fans out there).

These are not the monks you are looking for, move along
