Not sure why it took off on Slashdot (meme?), but I think it became the "Other" or "None of the Above" type options, and then expanded into other sillier choices. And thus we get this poll. I can't believe he's winning over paco
though. How depressing!
Update: For those unfamiliar with paco, read the infamous thread. Skim down till you find Ovid's post ((Ovid - poor paco) Re: How do I recursively process files through directories) and read that and several of the follow-up posts over the years. It's part of PerlMonks history. Now if we could just get Paco into the Saints in our Book! :-)
