in reply to Humour an important mechanism for language learning

I don't think your conclusion is supported by your premises. Specifically, I have 5 kids and, while they all learned with humor, they still find humor in language. Specifically words like "poopy" and "fart". :)

As for Perl, I always find humor in Perl.


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    I particularly find humor (and a little alliteration) in poopy Perl.

    You owe me some screen cleaner - I was eating lunch :)

    With three kids -- one boy ('nuff said) and one tomboyish girl, I concur completely. The other is "too refined" for that (yeah right).
