Bumper stickers/Slogans:

  • PM encircled by an oval, ala the European country stickers.
  • XPW, Same as above.
  • A trollish silhouette, surrounded by a red circle with a slash.
  • Red circle/Slash: /.
  • "Real PH's don't let other PH's use MSA."
  • "Perl hackers use CGI;"
  • "Thou Shalt Use <CODE> tags"


  • Little Buddha Antenna balls.
  • Plaster Buddha statues (not for use in Afghanistan).
  • Official PM hookas.
  • *Real* Coffee Mugs (e.g. 20 oz or better).
  • Erudil's Camel on coasters...perfect for those intra-cube flinging parties.
  • "Steins"
  • Anonymous Monk Silver Bullets...for use on those who really want them.
  • Action Figures (...oh, wait...)
  • And (of course) "PerlMonks: The Flame Thrower (It's a real hit with the kids...)"


Update: In reply to knobunc's reply below:

I'm aware of that, however, I'm thinking I'd rather any proceeds from the sale go to The Fearless Leader instead of CmdrTaco. Frankly, I like the Monastery better than Slashdot.

    I want second the "Steins" idea. I'd love a pewter mug with a good japh on it.

    I'd be more interested in products that simply had some obscure perl code on them than pictures or witticisms. Eg, camel code is preferable to TMTOWTDI.

      Hmm, those who do a lot of CGI programming could purchase the "Lincoln" Stein then ... To make it a good in-joke, it would be a pewter stein in the shape of Abraham L.'s head (that's recognizable outside the US, isn't it? =)

    You can already get the camel over at . While I am not opposed to the PM stuff being the same, it is probably better to have distinct stuff.

    Plastic/Plaster it's all the same, as long as it has a button, and every time you push it, to ask the buddha for wisdom, it spits out a quip of wisdome, one of which is post in SOPW %^).

    Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

    perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
