Suzie COBOL

/soo'zee koh'bol/ 1. (IBM, probably from Frank Zappa's "Suzy Creamcheese") A coder straight out of training school who knows everything except the value of comments in plain English. Also (fashionable among personkind wishing to avoid accusations of sexism) "Sammy Cobol" or (in some non-IBM circles) "Cobol Charlie".

2. (proposed) Meta-name for any code grinder, analogous to J. Random Hacker.
