This year is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ogden Nash, who's probably best known for his short works, which are full of whimsy and humor. Here is some good information about him and his poetry.

The short works are fun to Perl-ify. Here are a couple of weak ones from me.

# The Cow # by Ogden Nash # # The cow is of the bovine ilk; # One end is moo, the other, milk. # package cow; @ISA = qw(bovine); push @cow, 'moo'; unshift @cow, 'milk';

Here's one many will recognize:

# Reflections on Ice-Breaking # by Ogden Nash # # Candy # Is Dandy # But liquor # Is quicker. package candy; @ISA = qw(dandy); package liquor; 1;
I know people here can do much better. Add your contributions below.

Title:
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.
