} CPSC, Internet Oracle Announce Recall of Defective Answers
} WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
} Commission (CPSC), The Internet Oracle, of Bloomington, Indiana, is
} voluntarily recalling several recent answers deemed to be "below
} average, and in some cases, just really, really, stupid". If
} accidentally read by persons with reasonable standards of humor and good
} taste, these answers can cause disgust, nausea, and in extreme cases,
} projectile vomiting.
} CPSC and The Internet Oracle are not aware of any actual injuries
} involving these answers, allegations to the contrary in certain Usenet
} newsgroups notwithstanding. This recall is being conducted to prevent
} the possibility of injury, insults, and nasty letters to Stephen B.
} A few of the desperately pathetic answers involved are:
} Answer #QnAaqMu: In which the question "This space intentionally left
} blank" was answered with "This answer intentionally left humorless."
} Answer #QmmaOxv: consisting of a parody of Zero Wing, set to the tune of
} "Yesterday". It will not be quoted here.
} Answer #QFjaOLp: "Top Ten Worst Times To Say "Ooops, I think I dropped
} Answer #QQRayXc: involving a bear joke shamelessly cribbed from
} Many more answers are involved in the recall, the full list of which can
} be obtained by emailing the Internet Oracle with the subject line "tell
} me why I'm doing this again?".
} Furthermore, the Internet Oracle has issued a formal apology for 1212-5,
} which seemed like a good idea at the time, but probably wasn't.
} A recall notice for THIS answer will be issued as soon as it is sent.
} You owe the Oracle a better way to do product testing than repeatedly
} crashing into a wall.
