I think the first person using =()= (Randal?) is not the same as
the first person naming it in a Perl context. Both probably have been
invented independently, as goatse was a popular meme at some point, and
people collected references to it. It's not suprising that a minimalist
ascii-art version appeared. And that it looked like Perl code.
