The Best Gmail Error Message

>>>> Google Operating System

via Google Operating System by Alex Chitu on 9/25/08

You can't get a funnier error message than this:

Dear valued user,
You have reached the error page for the error page...
You win!!


Sometimes even the error pages can't be displayed and you need to come up with a plan B. Gmail's meta-error page is simple, yet effective: Google can't always win.

This reminds me of a similar error message from Google Reader: "Oops! That wasn't supposed to happen".
