an obfuscated closure

The actual string stuff here is pretty basic. I just don't see closures in japh's often enough.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict;sub mm{my $p=(q+1249211252m+.q-541159023a-. q*1952998770r*.q!542139762c!.q^1814055009u^.q/1667982706s/); return sub{pack(shift,split(/[a-z]/,$p))}}my$q=mm;print $q->("l*");
Added 6/21

Quiz:Anyone want to guess what my first name is? Shouldn't be too tough...

    You don't see closures enough? Well, here's a closure for you. A closure with one variable from an outside scope: itself. (You need to allow code to be at least 77 columns wide to benefit optimally from the formatting)
    $_ = "\nrekcaH lreP rehtona tsuJ"; my $chop; $chop = sub {print chop; +$chop}; $chop -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> ( +) -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> () -> ( +) -> ()

      A response from Abigail! I've been following your japh's for months! This was my first attempt at a japh, based on the very one you've quoted, along with a few others. Sure, I have seen closures in japh's, just not as often as other things. I guess I just really like closures...

    Closures stay in the context in which they were created. That's one of the ways in which they are useful; for instance, one can use a closure to create private variables. This is standard behavior.

    Yesterday's Chop Chop was a double use of closure
