The Apprentice went to Zen Master: on his face there were five red signs recalling an unfriendly hand. Zen Master smiled between himself, mentally figuring one or two possibilities.

"What's up, Apprentice?".
"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.

Disclaimer: It's not my intention to offend girls in the Monastery. Zen Master's opinions do not reflect my own.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
