"This code makes me want to kick puppies"
"This is the kind of code that makes me want to pull out my own hair and strangle children with it"
"The only thing that could fix this code is CTRL+A+Delete"
"I can only hope the author of this has choked to death on his own vomit"

Additions Please...

When dealing with a particularly lovely bit of logic The Kaptain finds himself saying "You have got to be fucking kidding" a lot.

i actually do this alot to my own code.

what the fuck was i thinking.
um, what
i quit
holy crap i must have been drunk

saying to a client regarding old code: just because I wrote it a year ago, doesnt mean I understand it today.

and often times i wonder if someone at the client monkeyed with the code, but is keeping quiet

I could eat a bowl of Alphabet Soup and shit a better argument than that.

I think the "You've got to be fucking kidding me" line is an alltime fav around here.
I'm also a big fan, when looking at my own code, of "That's not mine." and
"What moron wrote that? It's got to be completely redone."

PinkHat will most often simply hear me utter, "This is horrible. My God. Simply horrible." However she is enthused because that usually denotes the start of an early happy hour Wink

It is now believed, that after having lived in one compound with 3 wives and never leaving the house for 5 years, Bin Laden called the U.S. Navy Seals himself.
