in reply to On Commenting Out 'use strict;'

I just reread this node (it popped to the top yearly best nodes) and this line:

just cracks me up. Kudos. Do you offer any lessons on how to do this well? I need to use it on our marketing people. My standard response to these situations has been to say "that's just silly." The silly line is quite effective in getting developers to rethink their entrenched stances but those marketing folks need something stronger.
