On the one hand, bogo_sort algorithm examples with REALLY CLEAR and ACCURATE reply nodes could have a lot of value...
...but on the other, I'm concerned that a wtf section could be overpopulated with nodes mis-categorized by those (like me) with insufficient CS expertise to correctly ID a "weird, inappropriate" algorithm... or to distinguish between "strange code" and that that's been golfed; represents a style with which the reader is unfamiliar, etc.

And on the (customary) third hand, if implemented, I would suggest every node granted the honor of wtf membership should display with a very ^H^H^H^H^H VERY prominent identification, lest it be mistaken for "good" code or algorithm... and that its progeny be similarly rendered with a note (lest it be unclear, in some cases) that the node is response to perceived example of wtf
