Hilarious read, instructive in the ways of software testing, and a great thought experiment along the lines of shooting yourself in the foot using programming languages.
This is 'edge case' testing; posting values to a system that really don't belong there.
[hilarity ensues]
And that's kind of the crux of it. Making your testing as real world as possible is an important part of QA. Don't let those tell you otherwise. Be it unit testing, integration, QA or pentesting, assuring that all tests push the edges of what happens in the real world will make your software better.
