The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Without a doubt, that's the worst idea I've seen in a long time. Instead of using a nice, easy to read if, you've turned it into a very-expensive-to-support-and-debug piece of crap that you'd have to throw unit test after unit test at with a crap-ton of edges cases. Congratulations!

Now go back and wipe that smiley face off your post before I smack it off.
