I would second this stuff as well.
Maybe bring up the Modern Perl movement. Especially with Moose Perl has
a very modern OO system.
With tools like perlbrew and cpanm you can do your own Perl install
Strawberry Perl and Activestate have really got Perl on Windows working
Throw something out on Perl Monks and blogs.perl.org to see what other
folks think it cool.
I think this is rather cool:
Also, Perl has moved to a release tempo that is predictable, stable and
isn't burning out pumpkings anymore.
