It would be nice to have a -n or -p version of this that could be piped into similar to the Bork program that sometimes comes with various unices. Then you could cat files into it and have them translated rather than having to type them in one line at a time.
Also, there's a bug for the word pub, which is translated to nuclear sub. The sub is then translated to rubber dub below, so pub becomes nuclear rubber dub.

I don't think the "fix" used will work. The line is now:
$eng =~ s/\b(?!p)sub/rubber dub/ig; # thanks to xaco for spotting this
This looks to me like "replace word/non-word boundary followed by something which is 's' and not 'p' followed by 'u' followed by 'b' by 'rubber dub'". This will still replace 'nuclear sub' with 'nuclear rubber dub'. The (?!p) is superfluous because the next character can never be a 'p' anyway, since you say it must match /s/i.
Easiest is probably just to switch the order of the rules, since you can't say "replace the word 'sub' except it if used to be the word 'pub'" :)
