"I thought I've learned in the Monastery that there's always a way to do it with Perl, so I tried to use my wisdom to.... err... convincing a girl to...".
"Mmm... To be honest, I said that there's more than a way to do it, but sometimes there's absolutely no way to do it. But, how did you tried to do that?"
The embarassed Apprentice spoke softly...
"perl -MBone::Easy -e 'print pickup . "\n"'..."
The Zen Master said with a grin: "Never trust two things: pseudo-random number generators and sense of humour in a woman".
And the Apprentice gained (a bit of) Enlightenment.
