[Chicago-talk] a very bad joke

So, there was talk on one of the mailing lists that
perhaps when perl 6 comes around the name should be
changed to reflect its greater object oriented
capabilities. The idea was scrapped, though, when
Larry couldn't decide between

perl += 1
perl = perl + 1
perl .= chr(49)
"one more than perl"
reverse(++lrep - 1) + 1
--perl += 2

and so on.
