Funny “hidden” HTML comments and HTTP headers

I have have a wired habit of right-click/view-source on pretty much any new website I visit for first time, or from time to time for regular websites. That’s normal for being a web developer for long time, maybe that was stick to me since the times F12 didn’t do a thing on a Web Browser Smile. But mostly because I have learned lot of things by doing this since I could see how other folks are doing things. After all, HTML CSS JavaScript work was probably the first most widely adopted form of open source work.

Sometimes doing this ViewSource thing I found some funny comments in HTML comments, or as I recently saw, a funny HTTP header. They’re funny to me because only developers or developer-inclined people will see it. Maybe we as developers have some localized sense of humor about code comments, check one of the best code comments out there, but they might not be as “open” as ones in HTML or HTTP Headers.

Here are some of my favorites:

Well, I do think the Azure management portal is an awesome app, but that’s another teke for another day.

 

(Update) Twilio Terms of Service.

This clause 19 of the terms of service located at https://www.twilio.com/legal/tos

This is not “hidden” in code per se, but it’s definitely hidden to most people who never read the term of service. The relevant header for this post is:

Very funny but the one in terms of service one wins over this one.
