Perl is the rebel. The one walking sideways, using the unthinkable way of quickly solving the problem.

Perl is politically incorrect in a polished world of VB, Java, Powerpoint presentations and Bullet points. (Management doesn't know how to read sentences with more than six words.)

Someone said: "Good Perl is hidden, and has no name."

Perl is what makes our inhouse VB programmers scream, saying that "We should at all costs avoid that <disgust>scripting language</disgust>". Because Perl solved the automation problem in just a small moment, where their VB application will require human intervention to do anything at all. (When and if they'll finish it. (Chuckle))

Perl is frowned upon, by the suits. Perl disturbs, because it's politically incorrect, but still it just works and works.

Did I mention that I love Perl?

Everything went worng, just as foreseen.
