Speaking of funny but objectively bad variable names. When he was in grad school in meteorology, a friend of mine had an assignment that required some Python coding. I think he'd reached a point in the class where he stopped caring, and coding wasn't his favorite thing anyway. But he named his variables stuff like heyo, heyo1, and some almost-but-not-quite curse words that I'm not sure I should put here.
