For the last several months I’ve enjoyed reading Worse Than Failure. They post awful code snippets as well as very funny error messages.
Recently a guest writer wrote an excellent philosophical bit about how we laugh at awful stuff, but deep down inside we all know we’ve all written awful stuff, and someone somewhere is having to deal with it. Just like you have to deal with someone else’s awful stuff.
I’ve been meaning to post this for weeks, but today seemed particularly appropriate. Or maybe not.
One thought on “Bad Code”
At first I thought you meant the english language instead of computer languages. Funny, but what you wrote pretty well fits both.
