Simeon et al.,

Thank you for a post whose comments contain a link for goto for Python:

I like the way Python allows wtf but only after making you work hard or set
an intention to not-think.

I thought I'd make up a new drinking game for Baypiggies like:

1. Feast your eyes upon the code snippet at
2. Take a shot of your beverage of choice every time you see the zen of
python violated

but on second thought this could well prove fatal. I don't know if anybody
else reads the daily WTF but today's article is proof you can write ugly
code in any language! I hope you find it as amusing as I did.

ps - I've perpetrated some atrocities in various programming languages
myself (hopefully not quite so bad as this one) so I also related to Luke
Plant's recent "Prayer to the programming gods".
