Normally, a mystic wouldn't have to, they'd just divine intent. This too
is impossible to do with Perl =-)

And while I don't have a 'joke for python users', I do often tell others
that if Guido van Rossum were a true Monty Python fan he'd have named 
the language "Raymond Luxury-Yacht" AND require that people pronounce it
"Throat Warbler Mangrove."  =-) Does that count?
