When code evokes the wrong images

[ #18832 ]

While refactoring some production code, my eyes happened on the line

  my ($uptime, $disco_time);

which, in context, made perfect sense. But the part of my brain that was out of control at that moment seized on it, put on pastel bell-bottoms, hoisted the mirrored ball, turned up the party lights, and started playing Bee Gee's tunes over and over and over until I slapped myself several times.
