"And of course his code looked like a pair of cats had fought on the keyboard"
This one seems to resonate with a lot of people.
When I first started at Microsoft in 1989 I was shocked at how sloppy most code looked and expected that any day the word would come down to show a littl disciple and make it legible. Instead I've watched for over thirty years as it just got worse and worse.
I never could read ( this ) shit.
