    We really do not have enough Fools around. The role of the Fool is important: He is the only one who can tell the king the truth without being beheaded on the spot. Have a look at the worthwhile book form David Firth and Alan Leigh: "The Corporate Fool".

    You could say I set the $bar for what constitutes a $foo. :-)

    Just another Perl hooker - And definitely not the kind with any $class whatsoever.

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    Do you see one wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than him. (Proverbs 26:12)

    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)

    ...when I forgot to enable use strict; use warnings;.

    Do you know how raccoons can be so slick at surviving?

    The Fool perceived is not always the Fool that is

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...

    It's embarrassing to admit i was a fool. But afterwards, laughing at it is so much fun.

    A lot... but usually it's just an act.
