Yeah, I guess Lovecraft works.

perl shares at least two similar concepts:
Things that so twisted and evil that the mere sight of them can drive any
mortal insane, and names that mean disaster when you call them.

Fortunately, you've left that madness behind, and entered the clean, happy,
and safe python world of transvestite lumberjacks and singing vikings.

And if you don't convert pretty darn quick, you may just have a midnight visit
from the PSU.  You'll change your tune real fast after a few minutes in the
Comfy Chair.
