Kapow! Zamm!! Splatt!!!

[ #22301 ]

Yesterday, I decided that all my metasyntactic^Wdummy variable names are dull. So are my dummy data sets. Consider the following test script:

$foo = complex_function('bar');
is( $foo, 'baz', "foo *is* baz" );

Boring, isn't it?

It was even worse before, when I used the French metastuff: toto, titi, tata, tutu... French people also use pipo (I wonder how the list continues...), but I don't. Other French people use the whole shadok vocabulary (ga, bu, zo, meu), but again, I don't.

On this glorious day, I hereby declare that, from now on, whenever I need a dummy name or piece of data, I will use the sound effects for the 60's Batman serial.

I mean, look at this!

$bloop = complex_function('zlonk');
is( $bloop, 'whap', "bloop *is* whap" );

Ain't it just cool? Holy one track batcomputer mind!
