Documentation bit reminds of where I work it has to be said! Lazy bastards can't even be bothered to do XML comments, and Visual Studio does that pretty much for you, all you have to do is type one line in the description.

"You know, when you have a program that does something really
cool, and you wrote it from scratch, and it took a
significant part of your life, you grow fond of it. When it's
finished, it feels like some kind of amorphous sculpture that
you've created. It has an abstract shape in your head that's
completely independent of its actual purpose. Elegant,
simple, beautiful. Then, only a year later, after making
dozens of pragmatic alterations to suit the people who use
it, not only has your Venus- de-Milo lost both arms, she also
has a giraffe's head sticking out of her chest and a cherubic
penis that squirts colored water into a plastic bucket. The
romance has become so painful that each day you struggle with
an overwhelming urge to smash the fucking thing to pieces
with a hammer."
- Nick Foster ("Life as a programmer")

From http://girl.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/girl

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
################################################################################
#
#        _      _ 
#   __ _(_)_ __| |
#  / _` | | '__| |
# | (_| | | |  | |
#  \__, |_|_|  |_|
#  |___/
#
# /usr/bin/girl - Oh yes, it's quite real.
#
# An open source project, hosted at http://code.google.com/p/girl
#
# Background:
# Have you ever seen the tee-shirt bearing the line '#!/usr/bin/girl'? Perhaps
# you've come across a popular blogger who has that in her headline? Maybe a
# geek friend has concocted the term in an email meant to instruct you on what
# you, as a girl, should use. Whatever the case, it would take tremendous will-
# power to resist looking in the /usr/bin directory to see whether or not there
# really *is* a program by that name. Sadly, in most cases, no - there isn't.
# Until now, that is! Install girl into /usr/bin, and show your family, friends
# and associates that you do indeed wield this mysterious force of which many
# have spoken and few have truly seen in the wild.
#
# Instructions:
# Install this file as /usr/bin/girl on any *NIX system, and you will have a
# real executable available for your amusement. You'll need sudo or root access
# to fiddle around in /usr/bin, so be sure you're an authorized individual prior
# to any attempts at copying stuff in there. If you want it to run, you'll also
# need to chmod +x it, of course. As with any new code, read the source to make
# sure it's doing stuff you want it to be doing before you install and run it!
#
# Invitation:
# Please help me develop this project to its potential. I'm a guy. Yes, I'm
# basing my plea for your valuable time and involvment on sheer irony.
#
# Information:
# As a hacker, and more importantly as the father of a presently-two-years-old
# girl, I have great respect and admiration for the girls who have greatly
# altered the courses of history and technology through their contributions to
# programming and, indeed, all facets of information technology. Computers are
# not the realm of guys alone by any means, and even a basic knowledge of the
# origins of computer science would instantly dispel such a mythical stereo-
# type in any who would ignorantly succumb to the media's portrayal of our
# professions. In honor of women everywhere who see problems as a challenge,
# and who create solutions by rising to those challenges, I am compiling a
# history of women in technology at this project's wiki on its Google Code site.
# Your contributions of research and writing for that wiki would be just as
# welcome as contributions of code for this executable. Thank you!
#
# Dedication:
# For Aeysha, who doesn't understand.
# For Tegan, who hopefully will one day.
# And for Ada, whose father must have been very proud.

#
# Development notes:
# Yes, it's a shame. I know. But after 20 years of programming, I am only just
# now posting my first SVN commit. This, in fact, happens to be that very same
# commit I mentioned only seconds ago. The first one.
#
# So what exactly should /usr/bin/girl *do*? Well, to get this off the ground in
# style, and to keep it simple and iterative, we'll start this project off with
# one task and one task alone. We can add features and morph it as it develops.
# In fact, check out the wiki for an open-invite discussion on what, exactly,
# this executable should *do*.
#
# And now, without further ado:

echo "w00t!"

For the SVN guys, better to put #!/usr/bin/Xxx Lesbian Teen Porn 18 years old - Sapphic Erotica - Valerie, Nika And Susana.avi there instead?
