Error 404 Quickie

You have encountered an error. The post you are trying to view is unavailable because you have either typed the URL in wrong because you are foolish, or it has been taken offline by its writer.

While there are many reasons for an Error 404, the general loathsomeness of computers, for example, this one is of purely human origin.

The writer of this post has decided that it is not up to the standards of ambient moronics set during the Blog's tenure on the Internet, and has removed it. The poster's father concurs. This error message was able to contact FooDaddy's FooDaddy to ascertain his opinion.

"It just wasn't cohesive," FD'sFD said, smoking his pipe on the porch of his apartment, a glass of '06 Winking Owl in his hand. "It rambled clumsily, you dig? You can never edit too much. There was a time when I was in college when I could edit the chuckling hell out of pretty much anything. Why, I once edited Pride and Prejudice down to a sappy greeting card! I was a pro. The boy's making progress, though. I mean, I've known him to--hey look! A squirrel!"

FD'sFD spent the next few minutes making squirrel noises at the squirrel, which chattered back at the bearded gentleman from its perch in the pines.

The poster, who was unavailable for comment, is presumably working on another post of greater quality. The bar has been set pretty high, so this replacement post must be of a higher-grade stupidity if it is to be kept online.

Uh-oh. I guess this means that about 70% of my posts will soon be sucked into Error 404 nothingness. Accountability. Bah!

Oh, and for you less observant readers out there (ahem...Pickle Weasel?), don't fail to click on the graphic in this post to read the altered error page. Most amusing.

Thanks, y'all! I promise to have something better up in the future.

Dad! Quick! Throw your pipe at him while he's distracted!

Glad the error message meets with approval, Beth old thing. It is quite stupid, is it not?

And where is J. Nordby? Hasn't shown hisself around here in quite some time.

I am sad that there will be some stupidity that we will never see.

oh well we will have better stupidity.

FD's FD: did you get the squirrel? they are quick.
