I am preparing a Lightning Talk for YAPC::EU::2008 in Copenhagen about CPAN Pearls. I am not sure if it will be accepted or not, but I am having fun preparing it, and thus, I'll continue.
What I want to find is not useful or brilliant modules. What I want to find are code snippets. Snippets of really stupid code (it might work, it might be useful, but it is stupid) and snippets of brilliant code (code that is intelligent, or elegant).
So, if you think you know some of this code, please point me to a module, version, file and block of lines. I would really appreciate.
