in thread New Perl 6 book -- Yes, Perl 6

Ugh indeed. I think we should either stick with the camel (even if it's O'Reillys) or have the community come up with a new/official mascot of perl6 (parrot's great, but parrot's not perl6 -- a parrot riding on a camel? ;D).


MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

    a parrot riding on a camel?

    Yes, and the camel has six humps. ;-)

    How about a very attractive Arabian woman with a parrot on her shoulder, sitting atop a smiling camel? That sounds like such a great image. It would make a great tshirt. Certainly a lot better than a steaming cup of coffee or a snake.

      Surely, as the Camel is a Dromedary, we could swap to a Bactrian - perl with *twice* the humps!

      :) Ben.

      O'Reilly doesn't put people on the cover--just animals. They don't generally do mixed-animal covers either, though the game physics book does have a cat and mouse on it. (I think that's the only one)

      As long as we don't get the morbidly obese ground hog... :)

        I'll take O'Reilly book trivia for 100:

        Too bad it wasn't a very good book.

        O'Reilly doesn't put people on the cover--just animals.

        To hell with OReilly! I want my sexy Arabian babe on a camel!
