Although this is not really funny, I'm laughing to keep from crying. Laughter kinda like Tom Hanks in The Money Pit when the tub fell through the floor.


When I approached the developer about it, he explained that "It is a thing of beauty!"

Reminds me of some of the old AS2 sites I've seen. Lovely!
Is that code out in the wild where you work? Oh man, that's just pure evil.

I thought for sure that this snippet would be the ugliest code I'd see today: Please shoot the person who thought this is how a "Next" link shoul...
Yup. That bit of code is deployed to about 13,000 desktops computers on 6 continents. That is probably the ugliest that I've seen, but there are some others that are almost equally as bad. One of my other anti-favorites is the 31 parameter method. This is not 'my' project but I wrote a lot of web services that it uses so I usually get called on to work in it when there's a need for server interaction. After a couple of days of wading around in that mess I get REALLY cranky.

This is truly awesome in its badness. At least they could use recursion to build their incredibly fragile parent walking code.
