in thread Perl can do it, take 1 (sentence generation)

Just a nit, the unary + doesn't "force scalar context", it actually just causes perl to interpret the next thing as an expression, rather than say, a bareword or a block.

(Nitpicking myself, what is a better word than "thing" when I say "interpret the next thing". Terminal? Token?)
