in reply to XKCD references Perl!

Yeah I think it's news.

But from all XKCDs which reference Perl this is for me the hardest to understand the pun.

Perl is equivalent to using regex? What is "jay"?

Or is the supposed message that only an older generation wearing thick glasses uses Perl and there explanations are as cryptic as this strip?

... must be.
