On Cutesy Error Pages

Coupled with the Twitter Fail Whale, these things make error pages cutesy.  These little mascots remove the shame from their display, and personally, I am against it.  Because you should feel bad when you see them, you should feel anger against the service provider who is letting you down.  Where is the rage against a banana or a whale?  It makes one sound petty.

Also, a little side note to the tr.im staff: You do not put a comma in a compound predicate with only two parts.  Well, you do, but that’s because you’re wrong.
