Apple likes to leave various strings throughout its binaries and libraries in iOS. You can find them by running
strings <binary name> on OS X. Some of the more interesting/entertaining ones are posted here.
They like to say "WTF?" in here. The context doesn't exactly suggest they're referring to WTF.

Dealing with a 5.0-5.2 inner manifest. Mistakes were made, but we're going to do our best to recover Refusing to backup with a 5.0-5.2 inner manifest. You're going to have to throw this out and do it over again, buddy. *** REFUSING TO BACKUP USING OLD BACKUP SERVICE. INSTALL THE IPHONE SDK 4.0. *** The safe harbor data for %@ has overstayed its welcome (%@). Mothballing it We were handed an encrypted backup but we don't have a password. Throwing out this manifest and creating a fresh, unencrypted one Backup request received from a new backup protocol version. Let's do the versioning dance. Our version: %@ Talking to an old version. Jumping straight to the action and sending files Ok, that was fun. Really beginning the backup. Could not flock the restore running file at %@. This restore may be a bit bumpy... Looks like this is a magic restore. We'll be keeping all your settings intact for this one... Thanks for the Memories %s is being feisty. Sending it a SIGKILL %s decided it didn't want to play well with others and refused to exit. We're going to continue with the backup/restore anyway and hope for the best. No help is available for BackupAgent at this time. You probably don't need to pass any arguments anyway. Could not get the mobile user's passwd struct. We'll try %@ just in case, but things will probably go downhill from here.
