If Perl Hackers have any flaw it could only be our painful, shocking modesty
Vey amusing post - it's a long time since I've laughed so much at a post on perlmonks. (And it was a very healthy, wholesome laugh ... not my usual disbelieving, sarcastic and cynical laugh.)
I'm reminded of a post from Karl Glazebrook to the PDL mailing list (a coupla years back), where he suggested that the collective noun for a group of python programmers should be a "smug".
It got me thinking about creating collective nouns for groups of people who programme in other languages.
I thought a group of Java programmers should be called a "wank", a group of C programmers a "claustrophobe", a collection of COBOL programmers an "anachronism", a collection of C++ programmers an "aloof", and a collection of perl programmers a "cemetery".
Not so sure that everyone will agree, but ;-)
