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, embarrasing 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.

The best thing I ever saw while debugging code was comments in Polish. The variables were also given Polish names so discerning the possible usage was more difficult. I asked a Polish programmer to please translate the comments and he told me there was not an English translation possible. I've always thought that was funny. To this day, in the code, when someone wants to use the buffer class they construct a CBoffo, usually called Boffo. It always reminds me of Hans and Franz doing a SNL skit.
