What is the weirdest piece of code that you have written and does the job?

Have you ever written a piece of code that was not exactly the definition of 'clean code' but does what it has to do? (and does it good for a long time?)

Feel free to share it!

One night, being tired and sleepy, I wrote something like this

if(a == true)
{
   doSmth();
}
else if (a == false)
{
    dontDoSmth();
}

In the next morning, when I found this, I decided to leave this code on its place, because it was so embarrassing and stupid, so I monumented it in my code.

 

ohh... you missed a check for NULL 😂😂

 

If a can be true, false or null.
In that case the if statement could make sense :-)
