Weapons of Mass Destruction

Here's a funny page to check out. It will look like an error message, but read it carefully and you'll see the joke. Try this soon, before Google fixes its site:
1) Go to www.google.com;
2) Type in (but don't hit return): "weapons of mass destruction";
3) Hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button instead of the normal
"Google search" button;
4) Read what appears to be a normal error message carefully.

whoa, sweet. it's actually a site completely outside google that has managed to become the most popular hit for that term. (unless they somehow made themselves the most popular, which is possible.)

Time magazine is attributing it directly to Google:
