You know how it goes. There’s never enough money to get a programmer and you don’t understand all that programming mumbo jumbo anyway, so you hire any guy who knows how to use a mouse (the computer kind). Then you hire that kid down the street to write you a simple script and everything goes wrong. How great can a language be if the normal, semi-literate moron can’t reinvent a simple CSV parser before lunch? Blame the tool when things don’t work out, and that’s what this site is all about. Blame blame blame. ┬áIt’s so much easier to blame Perl too, because people are so perfect. Wait, did we get that right? Never mind, our backspace key is broken. Whatever we typed the first time must have been right. It compiles, so screw it, we’ve got better things to do.

If you want to blame Perl for your big screwup, just let us know. Maybe we’ll let you blame Perl too.
