The International Obfuscated C Code Contest

Just found this link: The International Obfuscated C Code Contest. The rules are:

    To write the most Obscure/Obfuscated C program under the rules below.
    To show the importance of programming style, in an ironic way.
    To stress C compilers with unusual code.
    To illustrate some of the subtleties of the C language.
    To provide a safe forum for poor C code. 🙂

Previous winning entries are here.

I think we need to start a similar contest for scientific publications. The more I work in science, the more I wonder at the ability of scientists to describe simple things in an over-complicated, too scientifically looking manner.
