You know that you're really in for a treat when, after joining a large, on-going project, your technical overview consists of an email from the lead architect that reads "I have commented just about everything; you should be able to figure it out without a problem." Our anonymous poor soul who submitted this didn't quite realize how fun it would be ...

/// The GaidenCommand is a specialized Command for use by the
/// CommandManager.
///
/// Note, the word "gaiden" is Japanese and means "side story",
/// see "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaiden".
/// Why did I call this "GaidenCommand"? Because it's very similar to
/// a regular Command, but it serves the CommandManager in a different
/// way, and it is not the same as a regular "Command". Also
/// "CommandManagerCommand" is far too long to write. I also toyed with
/// calling this the "AlephCommand", Aleph being a silent Hebrew
/// letter, but Gaiden sounded better.

Since I'm on the subject of comments, I may as well share this comment that another anonymous coder sent in. I suppose you Canadians may be used to this, it was just a bit of place in Atlanta, Georgia ...
