That one is perhaps reasonable, if there are degenerate sku's (prefixes with no numbers attached, I also see that on my systems with "intelligent" overlays of generic vendor keys). But of course it all becomes silly with an exact match predicate. Even so, and including the order by, I've seen it be reasonable in a query generator, just some subset of the generator output is silly. More often I see "and 1=1 and 1=1 and 1=1..."
