It does rely on multiple references, which could be its downfall as a joke.

You need to know something about Perl (like what kind of syntax is possible in that language). Then you'll understand why Cthulhu trying to communicate over IRC might be mistaken for someone pasting Perl. And finally you need to know about "what's the best programming language" flamewars, which have the regularity and temperament of Shadow wars, a thousand times their frequency and lack the casualties only because weapons of mass destruction tend to be unavailable.

If you know the background, you may find it quite fun. I did... but perahps I have a silly sense of humor.
