To you then sir or ma'am,
Hearty applause, hot damn!

    I thank you h, for your reply,
    May you code on, and never die(),
    To voice my name, (i won't ask why),
    Think "kh", which you can try.

    Amongst the things that can be had,
    There are those things that taste too bad,
    And in disgust, but not too mad,
    We say "(y)uuuchhhh!", but not too sad.

    That "uch" does not rhyme with duck,
    Because then it would be spelled like "yuck",
    Nor does it sound like such,
    As then it would not add too much.

    Of that "ch", and this is key,
    Think of "ich", the German "me",
    The easiest example, i can see,
    (If there is easier, what can it be?)

    Now pronounce that "a" a doctor's "ah",
    Of course that makes the syllable "cha",
    Now say it twice, but like (the Indian) "tawa",
    Surprisingly like saying "tada".

    That is the ultimate syllable has stress,
    But on the end as you may guess,
    That simple "m", you must impress,
    And after that you can digress.

      What a splendid conversation
      Where differences rate no mention
      Gentile maybe is old hat
      But it's none the worse for that

      No axe to grind or ire to raise
      What a refreshing change of pace
      A waste of cycles? May be to some
      But then, perhaps, they're just glumb

      To raise no hackles, nor raucous laugh
      No feeding the trolls "on our behalf"
      You grew a smile upon my face
      I welcome you to this place

      May your demeanour rub off on me
      To step outside of me and see
      the bigger picture; all around
      To smile, where once I frowned

      Who gives a monkey's if I misspell
      If the question's less Perl; more SQL
      Vive la différence; live and let live
      T'is no obligation; but a pleasure to give

      Pure distraction; no purpose in mind
      Your posts are a pleasure of the purest kind.
      For the simple smile you brought to my day
      I hope "Thank you" is all I need say

      With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
      Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
      "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      The start of some sanity?


        1. se-quell
        2. Mispeakwell
        3. ess queue ell

        3 didn't even come up in mind. Between 1 and 2, i like 2. It is a "rhymization" based on faulty "pronounciation." :^P

        While your discussion, free and pure,
        nice poetry, it is for sure,
        my PerlMonks::parser, very sadly,
        makes my head throb very badly.

        Hmm, seems i should really have listened to my teachers and read more of those classics...

        Don't use '#ff0000':
        use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
        All colors subject to change without notice.
