joe code

joe code: /joh' kohd`/ n. 1. Code that is overly tense and
   unmaintainable.  "Perl may be a handy program, but if you look
   at the source, it's complete joe code."  2. Badly written,
   possibly buggy code.

Correspondents wishing to remain anonymous have fingered a particular Joe at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and observed that usage has drifted slightly; the original sobriquet `Joe code' was intended in sense 1.
