As discussed yesterday, a collection of cool, short and obvious perl 
scripts would be ... cool!

Thanks to CPAN, you can do great stuff with little code.
Such scripts (which have to be readable) would probably help fight Perls 
image as a line-noise/write-only language

Maybe we should start some sort of competition, where everybody submits 
such scripts, does a very short talk about it on Twin City Perlworkshop, 
and after some voting, we have a winner who will win something.
