Funny Code

What is the funniest line of code you ever saw? One of the developers at Barcap wrote the following: line in a C# function

if (this == null)

It absolutely cracked me up (well... I guess you had to be there).

Actually looks a bit familiar. If there was some code in the block I'd guess it was used to fix a debug breakpoint that the optimizer couldnt eliminate. I used to do things like that in the early days of C programming.


if (this == null) // set break here
this = null; // never called

Believe me ... it had nothing to do with anything that required thought ...
