WTF indeed! Friday humor. It is funny, right?

At Worse Than Failure, we read XML Kōan from the Fourth Dimension (emphasis mine):

This dump used a peculiar form of abbreviation in which letters were chosen seemingly at random from field names, in order to meet the well known XML limitation of only allowing 5 characters per tag name.

WTF? Indeed!

Yeah, you have to view source to see the <irony> tags around "the well known XML limitation of only allowing 5 characters per tag name".
