R0z3z 4r3 R3d

On inspecting an unnamed freeware Perl discussion board package of dubious quality.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Taint check your scripts,
0r 1 w1ll 0wn u.

Roses are red,
Tulips are fine,
Eval that param,
And u'r b0x w1ll b3 m1n3.

Roses are funny,
But this code is a hoot.
open() that $string,
And z00n 1'l h4v3 r00t!

    Hey there dws!! Interesting poem... you did a good job with all the 'kewltalk' stuff in it as well... but I think from my past experience and whatnot... all that 'kewltalk' stuff is kind of getting really old... no offense! The poem itself is really good... but if you didn't have all the differen symbols and so on in there, it would be even more que bueno!! Later man.

      You totally missed the context. dws has presented a very clever poem, spoken in a Jekyll and Hyde manner. The reason why I feel that you missed the context is because you thought that the 1337 talk was unnecessary. I say it is critical to the poem, just like chainsaw scene was necessary in Scarface . . .

        No, jeffa I understood the context... it's just that I'm really sick of seeing people using more characters instead of regular words... only little kids do that pretty much now days on the internet and games... but yes, I understood the poem in context. ^_^

        The "l337 sp34k" in the poem alludes to the consequences of deploying poor code, particularly CGIs that don't taint check their parameters. Read it from the point of view of a script kiddie. It's intended to grate on your ears.

    As a proud owner of all three perl shirts available to my knowledge (from thinkgeek.com), I would really love to see these on a shirt.

    All three are absolutely halarious. Great job.

      I agree, this would most definitally '0wn' if it were on a shirt. In some nice 'code poet'-ish font, all purtty and stuff. Then people would read it, and realize what it said.

    heh, as always. Kiddie language is great for a chuckle!
