    You're coding away and you need some placeholder text so you think up something unique but your humour gland takes control and you enter something innocent sounding but silly..

    What was your worst Kung Fu Panda moment?

    I can't think of worst, but the latest one I did was when I was coding a new "Contact Us" page into WHMCS.

    The one provided by them doesn't support Amazon SES, gmail, or any other SMTP service that validates what

    the 'from' address is. WHMCS actually forges the source email instead of properly using the ReplyTo headers.

    Anyway, while writing it I screwed up and had to send the email.... to the person that submitted form,

    and not to ourselves.

    Woops.

    That's not too embarrassing - at least that's just an accident.

    I've left embarrassing comments to myself to tidy up bits of code which I naturally forgot about.

    LOL... I would laugh so much when that "technical error" is really a table that just puts everyone into disney characters depending on there ethnicity  :lol: and they did not select the right row to get the name from xD
