$ perl -MTest::More=no_plan -e'sub foo { (0,0,"Text") ; } ok( foo(), 
"Bar" )'
ok 1 - Bar

I'm pretty sure Todd has a point here.

$ perl -le '$x= (10,20,30); print $x'

(A list value in scalar context evaluates to the last element.)

Here's the snippet from perldata:

       If you evaluate an array in scalar context, it returns the length 
of the array.  (Note that this is not true of lists, which return the 
lastvalue, like the C comma operator, nor of built-in functions, which 
      return whatever they feel like returning.)

There are several examples of ok( $x->Create( ... ) ) in Ticket_Overlay.pm
