[Chicago-talk] accessing another script's subroutine from w/in a module?

How can one properly declare another script's subroutine from within  a Module.

I would like to be able to do this:

require "./QuoteJoke.pl";
my $string = &get_quote_joke();

from a my home made perl module Fax.pm

without getting:

Undefined subroutine &Fax::get_quote_joke called at Fax.pm line 61

I know I am probably breaking some cardinal rule of perl but I can't figure it out.  

Thanks for any help.
