From the FAQ <>:

"What are Acme::Buffy and Pony)?

"Acme::Buffy and Pony are perl modules of dubious practical value which will 
reformat your code in a more friendly way. In this case Damian 
Conway and his Acme::Bleach module are to blame."

And from the front page of the website:

"So, what is this all about ?

"We are a group of people dedicated to the encouragement of all things 
Perl-like in London. This involves helping each other, discussing topics, 
sharing information and the occasional drink and mention of Buffy the Vampire 

And whilst I'd like to thank you for your help in bringing the importance
of Buffy in Perl Mongers culture to a wider audience, I'd like to add my
voice to those objecting to your characterisation of the show as a "sitcom".

It really is so much more :)
