It was supposed to be ironic/funny since in most of the examples you got 
the code drowned in the preprocessor directives ^^

I think we all got experience on how bad you can get with preprocessor 
directives (at least anybody who had the luck to dig glibc and libc bsd 
includes) yet nobody made a paper out of it ^^;
