A cute site providing humorous translations of the world's most frustrating search result. Personal favs:
  • American South - Ah cain't find th' page yer lookin' fer.
  • Australia - Strewth mate yer bloody page has shot through.
  • Blond - like omg! ur file has not been found, go paint ur nails and try back later, lol^^....I FOUND A QUARTER!
  • Cockney - No chance luv, carrnt find it neever.
  • Pirate - Haaarr, Lubber! I've sailed yon seas with toil and trial, and yet I cannot find ye file!
  • Pittsburghese - This page needs fixed n'at... it's all caddywhompus! Yinz needs look somewheres else.
  • Zombie - Arrgrg 404 BrAiNs aAAArrggh No ggrrgrh page brAiNz heRe BrAAAAIIINNSSSS!
