We've come a long way from Black Perl

P'raps my favorite piece of code. I'm slightly relieved it doesn't achieve anything though: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Perl

The OP mentioned Los Angeles for some reason. Been there, lived that. Not sure how well the 'master/slave' construct is understood there. I think 'pimp/ho' might be more comprehensible.
