PERL: Pain, Exasperation, Reward, Love

I've had a sleepless night, and to keep me amused I scribbled down on a piece of paper some "perl self-definitions" that might be amusing... let me hear what you think of them!
Perl is a:
  • prized electronic romantic lingo
  • paradigmatic entropy-reducing language
  • particularly efficient recipe launcher

Perl gives:
  • powerful effects, reduced load
  • packed extensible redundant libraries
  • provides enigmatic readable lines

Use it to:
  • produce elegant, refined letters
  • print enhanced reports lazily
  • parse efficiently running lines
  • punish exemplarily ranting lamers

Final comments:
  • Perl eventually resembles Larry
  • Python evidently ranks lower

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I disagree! I love Python.
      Whoops. That was me. Hehe.. =)
