    Step 1: if you're gonna do it, do it wrong.

    Step 2: if you're gonna do it wrong, go all out and do it the most wrongly wrong possible.

    I'm positive this was all written on an April Fools day, and somehow the joke was never caught by peer code reviews, then was pulled into production by mistake.

    Or maybe, just maybe, the whole thing was sheer incompetence. It's really hard to tell. Sarcasm. What did Occam teach us with his razor, again?
