New undies for the fashion-minded vamp

Not likely I'll ever see any of these, but it illustrates how entrepreneurial geeks can be. There is still a population that would stare and blink unknowingly, but that bunch is disappearing.

ThinkGeek :: HTTPanties:
"What's your status?
If you've ever run across a '403 Forbidden' error on a web site, it means you've either stumbled onto the wrong page, or you've been snooping where you shouldn't be! One nice thing about the Hypertext Transfer Protocol that runs the web (HTTP for short) is that it includes helpful status codes such as '404 Not Found' when a resource can't be found and '403 Forbidden' when the web site you're knocking at does not want you to come in.
One rarely seen status code is the elusive '200 OK' which basically means that everything went fine, and you're seeing the page you're supposed to be seeing!
We thought it sure would be handy if life came with status codes, but since it doesn't, we did the next best thing and printed them on stuff you wear. But not just any old stuff - we had to try something different, and print them on undies. So we bring you HTTPanties for the discriminating woman who would prefer a web-savvy and somewhat-direct approach in the romance department. "
