The only thing rotten is the mellon inside your skull... 

This is someone playing around with domains in the whois database so that
when you search for slashdot.org it comes up with that as well... Another
example is from microsoft.com, one of the results is:

MICROSOFT.COM.WHOIS.RESULTS.MAKE.A.GREAT.HUMOUR-LIST.COM

The levels of stupidity generated when slashdot is up are bad enough, lets
not try to set new records while it is down.
