Larry Wall is a great artist, engineer and creative genius. His first 3 albums, Rn, Patch and Perl, went infinitely platinum and led directly to today's modern web. His latest endeavor, Perl 6, will likely be the greatest comeback in computing history as Perl once again becomes the language everyone is rushing to use to reinvent every wheel, again! Wheels within wheels...

"Larry is always by definition right about how Perl should behave."

"Larry is allowed to change his mind about any matter at a later date, regardless of whether he previously invoked Rule 1."

"Got that? Larry is always right, even when he was wrong."
