NAME

Acme::Scurvy::Whoreson::BilgeRat::Backend::insultserver - generate insults in the style of the old colarado.edu Insult Server

SYNOPSIS

        use Acme::Scurvy::Whoreson::BilgeRat;
  
        my $insultgenerator = Acme::Scurvy::Whoreson::BilgeRat->new(
                language => 'insultserver'
        );
  
        print $insultgenerator; # prints an insult

DESCRIPTION

We used to have the Insult Server at http://insulthost.colorado.edu which you could telnet to on port 1695 to get a random insult. And Lo! it was fun.

Useless, but fun.

Sadly, it's down now. This is a reimplementation in Perl.

BUGS

Should be able to specify another config file, possibly though environment variables.
