Words to Your Mother: Quine

In computer programming, a quine is a metaprogram that outputs its entire source code. Wikipedia gives several examples of this, including the following JavaScript example:

function a() {
alert (a + "\na();");


Quine is also occasionally used to mean "to deny resolutely the existence or importance of something real or significant".
