'Obfuscation' is to make something difficult or unusually obscure. One of the ironies of Ruby programming is the general desire of Rubyists to believe that a goal to accomplish readability in code overshadows even at times its functionality. At times to the point of obsurdity. Enter the International Obfuscated Ruby Code Contest with prizes up to $750.
