in reply to Funniest Variable/Subroutine names

Decorum prevents me from listing mine. Sometimes when trying to debug complex programs, I'll just add little warning variables that occasionally get printed out. If the solution to the problem continues to elude me, my vars and warning messing get progressivly harsh until they sound like Pacinio in ScarFace.

One of the big problems I had with my older code was hunting down things like  do_this() or die "F***KING SH*T, do_this() spewed $! all over the place!"

Not something that should really be in production code :)

On a related note, a prominent eCommerce company that I will not name had an admin util called storef*cker.
