False dichotomies by name

Knuth wrote somewhere that he decided to call his code/LaTeX markup system literate programming because it implied that everyone else was doing illiterate programming, and no one wants to be illiterate. I’m sure that someone else has already made a list, but here goes anyway:

Attachment parenting. Better than chaining your toddler to a wall in your basement.

Literate programming. Anyone for some illiterate programming?

Natural parenting. Red food colouring makes kids happy, right?

Structured programming. Let’s use goto statements everywhere!

Anyone know some more examples?
