I posted this to FB today too, but I don't know if any of you saw it or not.

Today's is... interesting: http://thedailywtf.com/articles/the-contractor . This quote should serve to epitomize its absurdity: "Their head DBA explained that the difference between a uniqueness constraint and a primary key was semantics, and that audit records and current records should always be stored in the same table so as to keep related data together."

http://thedailywtf.com/articles/your-code-might-be-unmaintainable gives a nice overview of some of the more common offenses against good programming, Jeff Foxworthy style.

Then there is the one I contributed myself: http://thedailywtf.com/articles/Test-No-Software-Before-it-Ships!
Some famous ones:
http://thedailywtf.com/articles/The_Brillant_Paula_Bean
http://thedailywtf.com/articles/The_FOR-CASE_paradigm and the follow-up http://thedailywtf.com/articles/A_Truly_Selective_Case (and which is so common that it later got formalized as an anti-pattern https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loop-switch_sequence)
http://test.thedailywtf.com/articles/unstd-toupper
http://thedailywtf.com/articles/Tossing_Your_Cookies (this is... er, a favorite of mine I guess you might say, because it is the sort of thing that haunts the nightmares of pentesters everywhere. PHEER TEH SQUEAL KOOKIEZ!)
