Discussion on: Describe the worst coding culture you've been a part of

I was working in a company developing business software and we had a legacy COBOL system. The system has grown for more than 20 years and this was how it looked like. To turn the codebase into a more adventurous place some coworkers decided ten years ago it would be nice to name classes like g10w or phnompenh. Last one is cool if you like Cambodia but the whole codebase was a mess. 🙈
