What is the Best Comment in Source Code You Have Ever Encountered?

Here’s a fun Stack Overflow thread from last year: What is the best comment in source code you have ever encountered?

It’s eighteen pages of code snippets with amusing comments, ranging from simple warnings like “// Magic. Do not touch.” to cleverly-named objects:

Exception up = new Exception("Something is really wrong.");
throw up;  //ha ha

It’s a fun read if you’re into programming at all.

The thread has since been locked, so if you have any to add you can post them here.

      You should appreciate this one also: the source code for Reddit.com has (or had, anyway) the comment “<!–IESUX–>” in the HTML source.
