I don't like calling code bases legacy. The word "legacy" makes people think of Ivy League schools, vintage leather couches, and Dad's old bottle of Scotch. It rarely elicits the kind of feeling of pain and despair one normally gets when dealing with old code. So instead, I prefer to call crusty old code Hostile.

Hilarious, but sadly accurate.
