a script to post an object, through the image tag. Can't Post

I'm looking for a way to actually accomplish that through a perl script. The problem is this: in a forum setting (like this) I'm only allowed to use the anchor HTML tag, along with the image tag. Currently, I have a script that is called in my forum signature from an image tag and returns a random image.

Is it possible for perl to actually display an object (in this case, a Flash document) when the script is called from an image tag?

I don't think you can do that as the IMG tag expects an image to be returned, not a Flash animation. If that means that people can't have Flash animations in posts on forums like this, then I see that as a feature :)

I was hoping that wasn't the answer, but it seems like the obvious choice. And yes, if there were flash in a sig, it seems like there's a lot of potential to really piss some people off... Thanks anyways.
