in reply to Favorite Descriptive Variable Name

$foo, $bar, $baz, $bletch. I never seem to remember $quux when I'm actually coding.

On the other hand, in actual practice, I find I use a lot of bad puns and such. Once, in a program that found digraphs, I started with a simple $di, and ended up with variables like $paparazzi.
