404, Site not available, and others from your favorite sites

My small collection of my favorite 404 and error messages on the web, from mostly big sites.  Some are humorous, some are quirky, and I think they are all great.  No one is perfect.
Top web site error pages – my favorites.
1) – simple, to the point, diffusing.

2) – (oops! There seems to be a problem.  I’ll tell you what… let us fix it and this can be our little secret.)  humorous

3) – (our servers are currently fighting among themselves and we’re putting them into a timeout.) – if you have kids you will appreciate this.

4) – (“The functionality is not available… Be cool – we’ll be back 100% in a bit.”) – I like the slang

5) Witter error – before the whale

6) Google apps error – not funny, not cool… common google, you can be fun too!

7) error – (“we’ll be right back, in the mean time why dont you go outside and play for a while”) – LOVE this one

8)Facebook error – not funny at all, especially since it happens a lot

 9) the now famous twitter whale – simply brilliant

10) error (“Doh! The Technorati Monster escaped again.”) – good one
