Ah, so.

Finally, thanks to the Wikipedia, we managed to find the source of those wonderful error message haiku we've blogged about in the past. They originate in a Salon Challenge way back in the nineties, where they invited readers to submit three error messages written as haiku poems. And presented this as an example:
Something you entered
transcended parameters.
So much is unknown.
You can read the results of the contest here.

P.S. For a counter view on this, you must read Paul H Henry's A Call for the Complete Elimination of Joke Haiku Production on the Internet.
