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.

Did he use Polish diacritic in the variable names (like "ą ę ó" etc.)? That would be awful. BTW I have no idea what the hell is "Boffo"... it sounds like a joke to me.
Once I was working on a project in which there was a requirement to name database columns in Polish. D'Oh! | :doh: Maybe it's because the rest of it was in Deutsch. The code was in English, though, while comments still in Polish...
Greetings - Jacek
