Apology in JavaDoc

Recently I stumbled about a lovely piece of JavaDoc:

  * Because of possible changes of the Jar's name 
  * the actual name has to be determined programmatically.
  * Apology to Baldr, Venus, Aphrodite, Lakshmi, Hathor 
  * and all remaining gods of beauty.
public String getJarName() {
  .... // very ugly code
