in reply to Funniest Variable/Subroutine names

While we're on the funniest messages topic, when shutting down UML recently I saw "Alert! Inodes still open! Self destructing in 3 seconds". Kind of funny when you realise that there's sod all you can do. Even powering off won't help the situation...

As for funny variable names, I occaisionally find myself writing things like if $action{$action} in my code, or creating files called smack and please so I can type

prompt> more smack please

Other reannual favourites are things like stupidlylongvariablename or  HFV(the human-friendly variable). For CGI scripts running under mod_perl, my favourite jump target is the_edge:.

Hmmm. I think my sense of humour needs a brush up.
