It's easy to drive guidances like DRY and "Clean Code" much farther than they were meant to. After all, in his book "Clean Code", Uncle Bob wrote:

"In general programmers are pretty smart people. Smart people sometimes like to show off their smarts by demonstrating their mental juggling abilities. After all, if you can reliably remember that r is the lower-cased version of the URL with the host and scheme removed, then you must clearly be very smart. One difference between a smart programmer and a professional programmer is that the professional understands that clarity is king. Professionals use their powers for good and write code that others can understand."
