    And he almost got in deep trouble over it as well. It's a copyright infringement of CNN's intellectual property.

    I did the same thing with a BBC News page. I changed the content to read that my colleagues house had been demolished by a freak accident.

    My manager panicked because of the legal implications for the department if anybody saw it. Fortunately the page wasn't live, I had just changed the hosts file to point to one of our internal web servers.

    Good for a laugh though.
