Names for variables

For some reason I am compelled to write these down:
foo
bar
baz
monkey
pirate
ninja

That is the sequence. Ignore any imposters.

  1. This is *uncannily* like the sequence I use for variable naming in example code!
    Only my order is always: foo, bar, monkeys, bananas, pirates, and blub.

  2. Hmm. Maybe I should add banana. Bananas are good, and hard to confuse with real things.

    Oh, hey, “metasyntactic variables.”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasyntactic_variable
    and
    http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/M/metasyntactic-variable.html
    where it is stated that baz is the third in the MIT series. People who know me know that MIT has a special place in my heart for no reason at all.

  3. I want a banana sticker.

  4. For Paul: Banana Sticker
