Weasels have eaten our phone system

For about an hour on Tuesday night, Citibank customers trying to phone the company were met with the same odd message in place of a polite automated service operator: “Hello world. Weasels have eaten our phone system.”

I think the best part is the reasoning why. Open source software, a dedicated contributor from 15 years ago paying to record joke messages, and a large company using something for free and being “bitten” by this joke/bug. It hits all the right notes for me.
