OK, you've got my brain thinking.  On one side is a simple program:


use SanDiego;

print "Just ",
               defined $SanDiego 
    ? "A Local"
                : "Another", 
      " Perl Hacker!";

And on the back:

package SanDiego;

our $SanDiego = {
	weather  => 'Wonderful',
	beaches  => 'Beautiful',


Perhaps we can add some other attributes: 
	PerlMongers => '',
	conferences => 'Open Source',
	electricity => rand(1), 
	zoo         => 'World Famous', 

Of course if Damian were here he'd probably re-write the whole thing in
Perl 6.  :-)
