"If memory serves me correctly; in my travels of the
east coast of the US. A chipmunk weaves
Perl with a delightful air. From a small tree in Boston
Common, he gnaws regex's and other Perl constructs."
While the above is being done, we do a flyover and zoom
into Boston to see chipmunk toss an acorn at
We now switch to a darkened indoor stadium:
A coding stadium in the monastery. A spotlight falls on
the podium as merlyn comes out wearing a sequined red
tuxedo with a gold lame' cape and gloves.
"Welcome to Iron Perl! Today we bring to you a young
rodent challenger to our arena!"
We see a small rodent come through curtains
on the other side of the stadium. merlyn meets him
. Are you ready for the supreme
"*chitter*!", spraying a few nuts out of his mouth.
As merlyn dusts off some nut bits, he gestures to the
end of the stadium. He shouts, "Arise my Iron Perl Monks!"
Four Perl Monks materialize.
in a red robe, "Representing runtime
in a blue robe, "Master of CGI!"
in a yellow robe and holding a stuffed penguin,
"Philosopher of functions"
in a purple robe and holding a Steiff camel,
"Expert at Win32 Perl!"
"chipmunk Which Monk do you wish to challenge on the
keyboards of conflict?", asks merlyn as ominous music
"*chitter*" as he points at Ovid
"Very good!" says merlyn as we now pan through some
of Ovid's accomplishments. (CGI tutorial, dropping a pool
ball on a rampaging java programmer, writing an obtuse
"Now lets meet our Judges!"
At this point boo_radley starts the voice over and
we pan across our panel of judges.
; founder of perlmonks, without we wouldn't be here,
; editor of www.perl.com,
; outside link maintainer,
; census gatherer of our monastary,
; jester and contrary opinionator"
As this is being done, we see jeffa wheel a large gong
into place next to merlyn.
"Now it is time to ring the Gong of Fate and see what
theme our programmers will create with!"
What will our theme be?
defend his Iron Perl Monkness?
jam his keyboard with nuts?
What programs will our Perl Monks present to the judges?
Who let princepawn
These answers and more when lemming gets some
more time! (And doesn't get beaten too badly for this.
boo_radley and jeffa deserve credit/blame for
inspiring this sillyness as well. Plus thanks to our Iron
Perl Monks for having to answer interview-like questions
