Amazon’s Subtle Humor?

Earlier today I noticed that while my blog page loaded quickly it still took some time for Firefox to report the page as completely loaded.

Ordinarily I’m not concerned – web pages always have to wait a bit for external links (such as ads or counters) to load. Today, however, it took about 15 seconds – much longer than usual – and I was about to suspect internet foul play when some sleuthing suggested the likely culprit was my blog link to Amazon.com:

IP Address: 75.101.166.63
Reverse DNS: ec2-75-101-166-63.compute-1.amazonaws.com
Host: Amazon.com, Inc.
Location: Seattle, WA, USA
Page Load Time: 14.192 secs.

Mystery solved, and hilarity ensued: Click here to see why I was laughing at either Amazon’s subtle sense of humor…or unfortunate choice for a website address.

Not laughing hard / long enough? Here’s a bunch more.

Thanks for reading!
