Great idea and great picture!

Does any-one else round here remember Biggles? I never thought I would be posting about him here :) For the uninitiated Biggles was a fictional WWI pilot in stories by Capt WE Johns. To bring it back to perl when Biggles was in 266 squadron flew a Sopwith Camel! And to bring it back to the monastery, by some kind of weird pattern matching I have always thought of Sopwith when I have seen the SOPW around the monastery, could it be-

Seeker of Perl Wisdom in Transcendent Hack

++ to any-one who can tie all this together in a piece of monastery wear :)

Coming back to the real world now :) I also think the picture desrves a camel somewhere and I thought that the "Programming Republic of Perl" logo as a patch on the pilots bomber jacket would be perfect. (I know it's not strictly monastery wear but I would buy a jacket like that :)

my $chainsaw = 'Perl';
