Problem? Ah, you mean that "sense of humour" problem. Well, a number of
people emailed me privately that they appreciated the humour, so perhaps
the "problem" is with the receiver's end.

And as far as "mocking the BDFL" - please. Like the name "BDFL" is
meant in all seriousness? You might not have noticed that the damn
language is _named_ _after_ _a_ _group_ _of_ _comedians_.
