It depends. A little levity is fine. Doing so at expense of clear/readable code is not. If I have to debug some code with 'comedy' variable names I will get quite grumpy about it, for all the reasons I'd get grumpy if you just used single letters all the way through.

But in comments (as long as you _also_ include the comments that you _need_) it's fine and great. In error/diag messages too (again, provided you're actually producing _useful_ output as well).
