one-liner to Concatenate Vcard names and numbers

After watching a guy on the news talk about flood preparedness and a need
to have a papercopy of your contacts phone numbers I came up with this

perl -ne '/FN:/ && print, /TEL;/ && print' *.vcf > ~/vcardsinfo.txt

You may need to switch the two regexs as fields are not always in the same
order, also contacts with no telephone number show up!
