This came up in a chat with a friend today. Sure code is sometimes hacky but it generally doesn't outright declare itself horrendous...

L: thing about [the party] is that it is hrrendously crowded
L: er... horrendously... or however it is spelled
L: brb.... gotta let puppeh out
Me: ;) Not a word I used that often.
Me: Doesn't show up in Intent-Revealing Code very often.
Me: I mean when did I ever want to say EnsureWidgetWibblesHorrendouslyDuringTesting(Widget w, WibbleFunction wf)

On the other hand, sometimes The Daily WTF makes me wonder whether code should be plastered with disclaimers and apologies just in case...
