Today's Village Voice
is carrying a sidebar personal ad from a gentleman named 'flunx' with the following caption.
More about what I am looking for: "I'm looking for a woman who can compare and contrast Python and PERL, or at least knows what they are."
Too bad he had to write 'PERL.' Also, the ads are rotated automatically, so you may not see this one in the linked page.
Any other sightings of Perl in the mass media? Furthermore, do you / would you date someone who uses Perl?
