Method Names of Excellence!

Just had a great giggle and a shudder after my workmate Henrik showed me some code that is the latest check-in for a project, and I assume running on a site out there.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
	if (Request.QueryString["QueryStringKeyOfAwesomeness"] != null)

Inside the same class we have methods with such glorious names as:

  • DoSomeMoreTrippyStuffOggaOgga()
  • DoSomeCrazyAssDataUpdatesV2Awesome()
  • DoJDMagicalSuperUpgradeWOotWOt()

Somewhat disturbing that the ThisWillBeEmbarrassingOneDay() can still be run on the live site if you know the magical key, but those method names, wow!

What is the craziest method name that you have encountered?
