Nice one. The first two lines are pretty funny on their own, with "got a match?" as the punch line. Actually, just the thought of a hash slice and a regexp sitting in a bar together makes me chuckle.

Here's my attempt at making a different joke out of your punch line:

A substitution, s/\//\\/, walks into $bar and sits down and orders a beer. Already sitting next to him is another substitution, s/^$//e, holding a scotch and soda in one hand and staring expressionlessly at the pack of cigarettes she's holding in the other hand (camels, of course). s/\//\\/, hoping to bum one from her, asks her whether she wants to have a smoke together. She replies, "I'd love to, but I haven't been able to find a match."

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
