Perl 6 Development

2002-02-15 18:33:49+00 by TC 6 comments

So we went to the Oakland Zoo last tuseday and you all know how dangerous that can be during the spring(well they think it's spring) and these two are going at it and notice the other one waiting for his turn. I make this crack about never seeing this on an Oreilly Book and the guy (obviously a programmer) says I dunno it sorta looks like perl 6 development to me. Some of you will find this funny the rest of you can just assume I am trying to one up Dan's Bugfuck picture

The picture is too small. Which one is Larry and which one is Tom? And is that Jon or Randal waiting?

The picture is linked to a bigger version of it's self :) and second <giggle> I suppose it depends on who you talk to but I would guess the most popular version would be Tom on the bottom with Merlin topping him with Larry standing on the side saying "Play Nice" </giggle>

Yeesh. Hot camel sex and they're really into it. Talk about humping.

I don't know whether to ask you guys to take me to the zoo if I ever get out there or to buy me a quick-pick lottery ticket.

Todd, that was great prose - it was almost like reading a Don Marquis poem. (Go dig him out of Google and you'll see why, if you don't happen to know the name. Archy the Cockroach.)

I didn't realize camels ever GOT randy. Damned stoic creatures, those.

Todd B: Yup they hold their heads in this stoic fashion most of the time but if you notice in the bigger picture, the "top" one is foaming at the mouth (sorta blows the majestic facade) and the noise they make....oh my god they probably heard them in Berkeley.

Debrah: They were not that adventerous "only one hump each" ;)

Todd B: I dug up Don Marquis(no not literaly)and rather enjoyed the tales of Archy and Mehitabel (thank you for the literary boost, it picked up my day)
