Having been confronted with the terseness of C and Perl, I must confess that I like if ($a) then $a else $b better, even though it may look somewhat silly.

Being verbose sometimes helps readers of your code more than being clever.

For those wondering, ($a, $b, $c, ...)[1] returns the first non-empty
non-false item out of $a, $b and $c, so it's a shortcut for
