No code today

I feel a burning in my eyes, a pain in my  temples. What can it be? Perhaps it is this code that I just read? Unfortantely I can't post it, but it's a TheDailyWTF candidate for sure. The authors carefuly considered each and every best practice in .Net, and gave them a very careful, very... interesting twist. For instance, on the subject of business objects vs. datasets, the code implements ORM on top of DataSets, Argh! And that isn't the least of it!

So, I'm not going to write any more code today in protest for WTF code everywhere. I actually had a sort of morbid enjoyment watching this code work. I counted a WPM (WTF Per Minute) of ~15, which I believe to be a world record.
