Bad code

bad code n. An ugly program. Pretty much every program ever written is bad code. Most developers figure that if architects made buildings the way programmers write code, the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.

USAGE: Typically, any program not written by oneself will be referred to as “bad code.”
