Today Darryl came into work wearing this shirt:

"Great shirt," I said, and he then introduced me to ThinkGeek clothes, where I found this delightful item:

HTTPanties! How delightful.

I don't get the 413 panties though. The other panties make it clear that the wearer of the panties is the one returning the code (as opposed to receiving the code). So the panties are saying that the wearer's ass is too big for the other person to handle? Or that the wearer's vagina is? Who would wear panties to declare that???

There are 2 other HTTP response codes that I think deserve to be made into panties:

402 Payment Required
305 Use Proxy

I don't know why authors of HTTPanties changed text of 413 code, but originally, as stated in RFC 2616, the message is "Request Entity Too Large". And that makes a lot more sense. Also description fits perfectly: The server is refusing to process a request because the request entity is larger than the server is willing or able to process. The server MAY close the connection to prevent the client from continuing the request.

Nevertheless changing it to "requested entity" is a big fail.
