Here's another good one.

Definitions of our database fields were written by our trainer.
He could not find a definition for a specific field. Instead of using some
accepted phrase like "reserved for future use", he defined it as
"erroneously added to the database and never used".

Our chief engineer looked at that when he was developing the next rev of the
system and removed the field from the database. Half the system blew up!

Oh well, I was amused. You'd have to know the personalities involved.
