A little poem that expresses the question I face each weekend, and when run, give a pretty big hint as to the answer.
!/usr/bin/perl if ($^I =~ m/cool/) { go("clubbing") } else { go('hack', 'Perl') } sub go { print "Guess I'm just another @{[reverse @_]}er.\n"; }

    What's a clubbinger?

      Clubbinger Kluh-binga Orig: fictional: a special wooden truncheon fashioned out of the tropical hard wood Bubinga.

      I'd prefer it if the "if else" made sense for both eventualities, which is what you are kinda alluding to, aren't you?

      It reminds me of a cross-word puzzle a stand-in teacher gave us for physics once:

      23. Is copper a good insulator? (2)
      Ironically the clues I'd got already helped further the obviousness of the answer, it was: N_.
