Someone mentined more Perl Haiku at the meeting earlier this week.
Wow, what premonition!!!!

Here's a message I just found in another PM group.

Now, in the "it's so absurd, you can't make this stuff up" category --
there are over 600 words of legalese (aka contest rules), and 0
(that's right zero) words defining what a haiku is.  :-)

    General conditions -- The Contest begins on January 20, 2004 and
    the winner will be selected on February 10, 2004. No purchase

It doesn't even say that it's gotta be a haiku.  :-)

Can you tell that I'm in a "spec writing" phase? -- you gotta be
sooooo specific.
