Hee! That was an amusing slightly-broken webpage I just saw.

The comments in particular made me smile. Oh yes, I've made remarks like that in my code too. Hopefully my customers haven't seen them. And you're right, Mystery Programmer.... it wasn't needed!

Here is what I saw on my screen:

In the meantime, feel free to continue to browse your local agency's Web site by clicking this link: http://www.(url removed).org //gather all the anchor tags var linkArray = document.getElementsByTagName('a'); //pretty sure this isn't needed //document.body.onunload=checkPopSurvey; for (i=0;i -->

Yes, exactly: I intentionally removed the url. I don't want to point fingers at what's actually a good charity, I just wanted to amuse people with something that made me smile.

That's nothing compared to one my personal favorites, which I have written:

// it's crack-smoking stupidity that I have to do this

Fortunately, that's in C++ code that the customer doesn't see. And it's in reference to a broken OS api.

hee! Oh yes, I've written all kinds of amusing comments myself. It's just fun to see somebody else's accidentally appear....

I've occasionally seen something similar in press releases, and even articles, where an editor inserts a comment or question and it somehow makes it to the final copy.

Too funny! That kind of thing amuses me to no end. Perhaps because it humanizes things, makes me see the person behind the professional.

That's pretty funny! I've done that too. I usually write something like, <--!I think this is where the new code starts.. ? --> Hehe!

One of the guys at work actually had to rewrite some comments because of a complaint of foul language within them by a coworker via his boss.
My comments tend more towards the abusive but with less foul language. I'm the subject of my own abuse about 25% of the time. most of the rest of the time it's aimed at the IRS or some state DOR.
