I told my students (post-secondary) that they had the choice of writing code well or of me writing their assignments in the same sort of way that they wrote their code. I told them I would write the following program: •take the text of the assignment •lookup a number of the words in a thesaurus and replace them with obscure versions •remove all punctuation •remove all whitespace •convert everything to lower case •insert random whitespace •capitalize random letters”

The guy says all programs became readable right away 😀
