Not by hand, I suppose.
Actually, this one was all done by hand (as opposed to Just Another Larry, where I freely admit to using a tool to get my initial picture :)). I *looked* at some generated-ASCII-art as a starting point for the formatting, but with something like this (where, as halley says, the code is using compulsory whitespace etc.) it's near-impossible to automate. You just have to fiddle around until it fits. If you look carefully, you'll see there's lots of 'cheating' going on - the '+' sign in the middle of the downstroke for instance (where I would have loved to have been able to stick another 'sub' or 'for'), or the 'print join' in the automatic version would presumably have found a better 'fit'.

Glad you liked it,

    Nice obfu! If you peer at the Snowflakes section of Acme::EyeDrops there's an example of how you can make composing these type of obfus a little bit less tedious, though it usually requires quite a bit of manual adjustment, unfortunately. /me scribbles note to add a similar shape to next release of A::E.

[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
[Your Mother]: The US government does not attract talent, but grafters and liars and it has been that way for the better part of a century. FEW exceptions.
[erix]: you think it only /looks/ worse this time?
[Your Mother]: HR Clinton was literally threatening Russia. She would have been MUCH more likely to start real trouble.
[Your Mother]: I think there is less decorum this time.
[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
