    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    For you nerds out there this is a classic Request for Comments (RFC): 2324

    Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (HTCPCP/1.0)

    This document describes HTCPCP, a protocol for controlling, monitoring, and diagnosing coffee pots.

    Most notable is the teapot error.

    2.3.2 418 I'm a teapot

    Any attempt to brew coffee with a teapot should result in the error code "418 I'm a teapot". The resulting entity body MAY be short and stout.

    The full RFC is here: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2324

    well i found it amusing
