Performance, readability and correctness are fine and dandy, but what happens when we start optimizing for whimsy, illegibility and outright silliness? Self-rewriting programs that also function as ASCII art? Yup. Rewrite any JavaScript program only using six characters? Why not? Let's take a break from the practical and laugh at some of the most unbelievable code you've ever seen. Then let's pull out the magnifying glass to figure out how it actually works. Learn how to read the unreadable and how to write code that—to borrow a phrase from the Ig Nobel Awards—makes people laugh, then think.
