Great code comments I stumbled across.

Today I was looking at some .Net 3.5 source code and ran into these great comments. 

      //ok, this is a hairy, dirty, and nasty piece of code
      //the alternatives are substantially worse than this though
      //i.e. when you do your own provider, LINQ assumes that
      //you are going to implement your own expression tree visitor and
      //do it all yourself.  Frankly, I still have xmas shopping to do
      //and I really don't want us to be foobared when we get
      //even more extension methods added to LINQ
      //therefore, we are pulling execute based on taking the calling the standard execute on
      //enumerable, but using our own class
      //

This is great because it is truthful and explains the exact intent or thought process of the developer.

//pray.  If something is going to break, it will do so here
return genericMethodInfo.Invoke(null, paramList.ToArray());

We have all put comments in here

I know this post was kinda pointless, but thought it would cause some to smile

Till next time,

@Daniel,

Yes, that is a great comment.  And because I know the author of that, it is even better :)
