One of the many great keynotes at OSCON2002 was by Milton Ngan from WETA (the Linux-based special effects company that is doing the Lord of the Rings series). At the end of his keynote address which went over all the open source tools WETA uses (including perl of course) he showed some perl code he had written:

#/usr/bin/perl -w use LOTR::Ring; ($ring = new LOTR::Ring(Elf=>3, Dwarf=>7, Man=>9))->rule(@rings = $ring->find()),$ring->bring(@rings) && ($DARKNESS = join("in", @rings)));
