Nerd Humiliation

From time to time I get an idea for an xkcd comic.  Here’s the last one.  Xkcd is nerdy and brilliant and doesn’t take suggestions.  So I try my hand at them here.

Tooltip: There is 'late binding' joke in here somewhere.
Reading your old code is like flipping through your year book.  It makes you nostalgic and horrified:  I remember that guy, he was deeply problematic.  Yikes, how on earth did I think that shaving one side of my mullet made it a good idea?  I don't have a sex tape floating around that someone could put on the internet to humiliate me...but if someone posted my early (or, sadly, contemporary) code, it would be embarrassing.
