I'll be honest, I really don't know how newsworthy this is. But, I thought I'd throw it out onto folk's monitors and see if it sticks.

At 10 a.m. today some local chatter between @willia4 and @jaredwsmith about just how bad Internet Explorer is exploded into the number 3 topic on Twitter.

And after a comment about how Internet Explorer is responsible for most Web developer woes, @willa4 said "A few years ago, IE pushed my sister down a flight of stairs." and then "IE crashed a plane into the Hudson. #iesucks #iestories #toosoon?"

What was it? Think of it as yo' mama and Chuck Norris jokes gone bad. Some examples from @jaredwsmith: "IE lays people off and then asks them for their severance pay back. #iestories #nearlyarealthing," "IE co-writes Nickelback songs. #iestories," and "IE killed Dumbledore. #iestories"

So, if you've got a Twitter account, go jump in the fun.

If you don't know what the heck Twitter is, go get started -- here's an orientation.

Oh, and while we're on the topic, make sure you have the latest version of Internet Explorer -- or consider getting Safari (yep, it's for Windows, too).
