What's worse than having to deal with poorly written and badly documented code? Potentially, Vogon poetry.
Developer Simon Harris tweeted this today:
This code is reminiscent of Vogon Poetry.

If you're not familiar with Vogon poetry, it features in Douglas Adams' The Hitchhikers' Guide To The Galaxy as the third-worst poetry in the universe. Here's a sample:
Oh freddled gruntbuggly, Thy micturations are to me As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee. Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes, And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles, Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts With my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!
You can generate your own with this BBC site. But don't make your colleagues suffer Vogon poetry. Do your job well.
