in reply to Humour an important mechanism for language learning

Reading Perl documentation, books and articles, I always like the way its writers are not averse to humour. It may come from its Unix roots and hackers humour but its spirit is well maintained. The humour that is evident in every corner (including here), clearly shows that everyone in the Perl community take themselves very seriously.

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.
