The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

How I Know I’m Old

As a kid, I had a really tough time with Caprisun drinks. Anytime I tried to put the straw in, I’d puncture it in too many places and make a mess. This was probably because I only had Caprisuns at soccer games. My mom didn’t buy them, thus denying me the opportunity to learn how to use them.

Even in my adult years, the rare time a Caprisun fell into my hands, I’d automatically pass it off to my wife to let her put the straw in. I know… pathetic, right? Well, today I tried it myself. And I did it! ALL BY MYSELF!

I’m a big boy now!

(I am a bit shocked the still make Caprisuns, by the way.)

Great job, young man! We are very proud of you.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
