I've been browsing CPAN a lot for the past couple of days and wanted to share some of the more interesting modules I've come across. I have never really had the need for any of these but what makes them interesting to me, is that I like to send them to friends with "this is fun little module, I bet you can't do that in .net/java/assembly"
A lot of them express the sense of humor that we have in the perl community that makes us never want to leave.
Acme::Damn
D'oh
Lingua::Romana::Perligata (one of my all time favorites)
Sex
Religion (Interesting how Safe, Sex and Religion can all work together, happily.
Acme::EyeDrops Beat that Mr. I use a fancy MS IDE
Coy Take that try/catch!

... Looking for more modules that really show what can be done in perl, even if you don't really need it ...

$self->{will}->code for @food or $$;

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I like to send them to friends with "this is fun little module, I bet you can't do that in .net/java/assebly"

    So those are your friends that keep posting these things to the .net/java/assembly "my language can beat up your language" advocacy lists.
