Let's bless this Perl Poet!

OK, this is not to publish my own piece of poetry, this time, but just to share a nice browsing experience that I had.

I was surfing in the outside world, looking for some specific Perl scripts, when I fell on that site.

I don't think that the guy is knowing about PerlMonks (he does not have any link to, and I have searched for some of his creations but did not find anything similar here.

I concluded that we should bless this person, send him an email, invite him to PerlMonks, give him direclty the status of Monk... I think he deserves it, read this example:

#!perl #gk_poetry 5 novembre 98 Guy Kastenbaum $s="tay here "; open(YOUR,"eyes"); open(MY,"heart"); while (($time_is=<YOUR>)&&$s) { $time_is=~s/e/n/s; $time_is=~s/t/e/m; $time_is=~s/a/d/; $time_is=~s/A/D/ism; print MY $time_is."\n\t"; $s.="top " if $time_is=~/over/; $s.="till " if $time_is=~/money/; last if $s=~/tay here till top/; } close MY; print "I ".((-f "heart")?"beat":$s) ; close YOUR;$s; __END__

    Actually, I believe he is already here. The first poem on the page you linked to can be found at Suessified Perl Poem, and I recall seeing at least one other of those poems lying around here. The page seems to be run by Kevin Meltzer, and the poster of the perl poems on this site is KM, so I think it's a pretty safe bet that he's already here :)

    Unfortunately, there was a discussion a while back at Perl Meanies, after which KM seems to have basically left this site. Pity, I often found his answers to be among the best on the site, and he got many a vote from me.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
