  • Ah. So that's what all the fuss was about - the Parrot team "borrowing" london.pm memes to make their projects seem cooler :)

    I confidently predict that the next two Parrot projects will be called "Buffy" and "Beer".

  • The proof is in the CPAN [cpan.org]:

    NAME
    Acme::Pony - An encoding scheme for Silly People

    SYNOPSIS
    use Acme::Pony;

    print "Hello world";

    DESCRIPTION
    The first time you run a program under use Acme::Pony, the module removes all that nasty text stuff from your source file, turning it into a lovely ASCII-art rendition of a pony

    DO NOT LEAVE IT IS NOT REAL.

    • Leon contributed the code for scaling a vector Pony and filling it, replacing the bitmap Pony from the previous versions.

      That's just sad. Or cool. Sad and cool.

  • Instead of a parrot icon for this story, use.perl.org should design a new pony icon? But what should the pony look like and what should it be doing? And should Buffy be riding it?

    Here is a possible ascii art pony image [cpan.org] (though you might say it looks more like a horse than a pony).
