Tal Cohen writes in reply to Cuff:
Book-in Jokes
The joke is not about the rindex() function, which is clearly not a misspelling or anything; it is about Scooby-Doo's pronunciation. As for Franklin, the joke is in the index entry. Not all jokes are equally funny, I suppose, and it only gets worse if you try to explain them, and yet: nobody will search a book about Perl for info about Franklin. Which is why such ''useless'', tongue-in-cheek index entries are considered in-jokes.
