  • Perl is now the official language for expressing euphamisms on the Internet. All other languages for expressing euphamisms, particularly English and COBOL are hereby deprecated.
    • Surely "official language" is itself a euphamism for "commonly accepted norm".
      use constant OFFICAL_LANGUAGE = "Perl";
       
      die "Wrong langauge '$language'"
        unless $language eq OFFICAL_LANGUAGE;
