Check this. And this. I was really excited about the possibilities for this combination of Perl and Python - whatever happened to it? Does anyone know?

It was just as clear on April 1st, actually. In fact I had to google for it, since originally appeared in 2001 and was no longer being prominently displayed at the O'Reilly, Perl or Python sites. But I thought it deserved resurrection for anyone who might have missed it.
Some of those code samples are just hilariously awful, aren't they?

Yep, and I was one of them

Hi all,
The LINUX Magazine April 2003 issue contains a very nice in-depth article on Parrot, the currently-under-development virtual machine to be used by Perl, Python, Ruby, et al. I kid you not :-)
Cheers,
Darryl

Would this by any chance be a resting Norwegian Blue Parrot?
