One of the resident monks is the winner of the 2nd Annual TPJ Perl Poetry Contest. I promose that he being a Perl Monk had nothing to do with my judging :) He just got megapoints for it being a Tolkien port (and my liking of it in general).

UPDATE: Mr. First Place (Erudil) just told me that Mr. Second Place is also a Perl Monk, andreychek. Obviously, since this wasn't know, it had no bearing on judging.
