I know better ways...
OK, so you're not really after "how do I do this?", you want to be sure that "the answer" is that it's really stupid.

I invite you to read mjd's note on Why it's stupid to use a variable as a variable name.

    The code (not mine) is badly structured and has other problems so I will get it changed. But ignorance is always dumber than knowledge and I didn't know the answer to the question I was asked. Now I do. So no the question wasn't stupid and as you now know the answer too, you too are a little less dumb then you were.
