    I saw this on stackoverflow while Googling for a C program that was shaped like a diamond and actually compiled and ran. Had a few laughs, mainly because some of the comments these guys write hit so close to home :p I frequently have no idea what I coded after I coded it and sit there wondering WTF.

    A few of my favorites:

    // Dear maintainer:
    // Once you are done trying to 'optimize' this routine,
    // and have realized what a terrible mistake that was,
    // please increment the following counter as a warning
    // to the next guy:
    // total_hours_wasted_here = 39
     * You may think you know what the following code does.
     * But you dont. Trust me.
     * Fiddle with it, and youll spend many a sleepless
     * night cursing the moment you thought youd be clever
     * enough to "optimize" the code below.
     * Now close this file and go play with something else.
       * This method leverages collective synergy to drive "outside of the box"
       * thinking and formulate key objectives into a win-win game plan with a
       * quality-driven approach that focuses on empowering key players to drive-up
       * their core competencies and increase expectations with an all-around
       * initiative to drive down the bottom-line. I really wanted to work the word
       * "mandrolic" in there, but that word always makes me want to punch myself in
       * the face.
