More Tao / Perl Whimsyby webfiend (Vicar)

I was just wandering around in the Temple (avoiding work, mostly), and I couldn't help but notice a thoughtful comparison comparison between Perlism and Taoism. It inspired me to share this rather shameful bit that I stole / adapted from the Tao Teh Ching a while back.
Programmers of the highest class, when they hear about Perl, practice it diligently.
Therefore the developers have thus expressed themselves:--
Perl, when clearest seen, seems structure to lack;
Good Perl is hidden, and has no name;
All of this is written with deep and (mostly) sincere apologies to both Larry Wall and Lao Tse.
