I'm not normally inclined to post 'amusing' outside links in the monastery, but this article over at BBspot was remarkably perceptive, and had me laughing so hard I thought my sides might split, so I felt I should share it ;-)
'... Kosman continued, "And 'Hey, God!?' there's a MODULE for assembling nucleic proteins and amino acids. Try 'Use Biology::DNA'. ...'

    KOSMAN: And 'Hey, God!?' there's a MODULE for 
    assembling nucleic proteins and amino acids. 
    Try 'Use Biology::DNA'.
    
    GOD: Who do you think WROTE the module, smart-ass? 
    And it's 'use' lowercase, not 'Use'. Dang know-it-all 
    mortals, can't even get the basic syntax right...

      That was the bit that made me laugh out loud. =) Well, without Hubris we'd still be working in bash and awk, trying to get them to pretty-print HTML...

      --
      $you = new YOU;
      honk() if $you->love(perl)

      The sheer genius of such a post causes one to be humble...The Perl Gods are smiling, to be sure!
