Why is a camel associated with Perl?
Is it just that O'Reilly happened to choose
a camel for the cover of "Programming Perl"?
And why one hump and not two?

I also noticed CPAN Acme::Pony and Acme::Buffy.
Why Pony? (as opposed to some other animal)
Why Buffy? (as opposed to some other TV sitcom)
And what does it mean: Buffy riding a Pony?

Andrew.
