And some people say programmers are boring

by Frank Wiles

It is a common stereotype that computer programmers tend to be on the boring side. Not Perl programmers it turns out. We're a wacky bunch. Take for example our benevolent dictator Larry Wall, he's anything but boring.

Not to mention Schwern's Shirt.

And what other programming language has an elder like brian d foy who has violated the Posse Commitatus Act?

This is just a small sampling of Perl's fun and wacky side. Personally, I think it's one of the reasons our community is so strong.
