A long time ago I decided to create a snippet where if in VS Code I type: :shrug I get ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

It isn't the most useful snippet, but fun nonetheless.

Lately my autocomplete for CSS has been giving me this snippet every time I hit enter after I start a CSS property.

So my CSS file is littered with these guys because I hit enter or tab for the autocomplete without checking which snippet it's referring to leading to some self-chuckling results.

What are some of your funny accidents or unintentional results from creating your own snippets and shortcuts in code?
