<humour, programming> A term used by users of object-oriented languages with inheritance, such as Smalltalk for a convoluted class-subclass graph, often resulting from carelessly deriving subclasses from other classes just for the sake of reusing their code. Coined to discourage such practice, through guilt-by-association with spaghetti code.
