This morning I got the 'Pataphysics CD in the post, from the Sonic Arts Network. There's some good stuff on there, including some of Luc Etienne's phonetic palindromes, and Nigey Lennon's strange homage to Alfred Jarry, The Man with the Axe.
Idly googling for merdre, what should I see on the first page of results but this. Though, on reflection, maybe it's not so strange after all. Perl is surely one of the more 'pataphysical programming languages.
