You like contrived examples huh? How about this.

The Vatican just called and want to commission you to write the software for their soon to be released answer to the current vogue for more and more violent and Satanic video games--The God in a Box console. They antisipate huge sales amongst followers once the Pope edicts that all good Catholic homes should have one.

There is one caveat. To ensure that there are no hidden sex scenes or other inappropriate Easter eggs, they have decreed that all games for this new omni-threaded processor console shall be reviewed, at the source level, by a senior member of the Vatican Council.

To facilitate this review, the source code must be written in Latin. What you gonna do? Does Haskell have an appropriate parser available?

Thanks to theDamian, Perl does!
