A client informed me of TheDailyWTF and I've subsequently read it quite frequently. It often features bad SQL of all dialects. It also features stupid business rules, management blunders, bad authentication, bad validation, race conditions and dodgy error messages.

Huzzah! I've had a couple of bits of code posted at TheDailyWTF before. One of them was to do with the lack of a real database and the other was about some dodgey JavaScript.

Seriously it cracks me up - a great way to pass some time on a dull day.
