Look, objects are absolutely fantastic. I mean, they're pretty great. I like objects. Objects may have their uses. They aren't the answer to everything. Objects are kinda over-used. In fact, objects kinda suck. I hate objects.

Look, let's start over, OK?

This is what objects are for: bundling data and behavior together. But like the perfect spoiler that is, that tells you *nothing* about the plot itself. Which is why we're going to look at real-world examples, how we like to use them in Perl 6, and maybe get a little bit wiser in the process.

Oh, and it'll take 20 minutes. So hold onto your hat.
