On a spot of R&R
In the land of #awk afar,
Fortune gave a chance to rant
With a local inhabitant.
If you thought the Orcs morose,
Let me show you one jocose:
bairui | of course, you could sub awk out for perl|python|ruby| | ... but interestingly in my tests, sed and perl | (one-liner forms) both failed hard on the 1.5 GB sample | data file. awk just chewed it up. Sure, a proper perl | script could deal with the problem better. Point is: | embrace polygramy. zendeavor | i am an archfag zendeavor | who cares about polygamy zendeavor | :) bairui | and i said polygRamy ;) zendeavor | typo bairui | play on words: polygamy = more than one sexual partner; | polygramy = more than one language zendeavor | i got it galaxywatcher | polylingual bairui | but that lacks the pun galaxywatcher | multilingual even. galaxywatcher | You seem like a cunning linguist bairui | gram = grammar; ah, i enjoy your cunning stunt, sir. galaxywatcher | I thought it was a punt bairui | if that's what the play calls for, then punt; | if it's rough and tumble, employ a stunt galaxywatcher | grunts bairui | well, that was blunt galaxywatcher | and plump bairui | sir, i do not mean to affront bairui | let's not let this come to thumps bairui | i'm sure we can be friends if we could just get over | this little hump galaxywatcher | That's worse than mumps. galaxywatcher | Good year blimps fly over humps like runts tumble | on nips. bairui | it seems you've glimpsed my lumps to strike blunts | and grumble your lips galaxywatcher | The pair of lumps that straddle the cage? Or the pair | of lumps that dangle near change? bairui | would you sir have me in rage? I demand at once to | know your gauge.
I especially liked his cage/change line. Well played, sir. :-)
