another coworker, on a past hack:

"There was a Ruby... abomination that someone wrote that hooked on the 'undefined method call' hook of the base Ruby object, computed the closest actual method by using Levenshtein distance, and delegated to that function instead."

@danielhglus oh yeah i remember that one, i think it was a riff on the very real github.com/yuki24/did_you_mean which is now part of Ruby 🤨
