Unlike other programming contests, the goal of the OMGWTF contest is not to flex your algorithmic muscles and solve some abstract computational problem like you might in an ACM contest. Nor is it like the International Obfuscated C Coding Contest; in fact, writing code like that would be a surefire way to lose this contest. Instead, the goal of the OMGWTF contest is to solve an incredibly simple problem using the most obscenely convoluted way imaginable. And for this first contest, the simple problem is to build and implement the logic for a four-function calculator.

That looks like fun, might throw an entry together myself over the weekend if I get the time.

Holy cow, a coding contest I could WIN.  Since... this is how I naturally write code :/
