AOL Lifestream’s Fail Bunny

The thing about the Twitter Fail Whale was that it was just so darned festive looking that you could hardly find it in yourself to be angry at Twitter for crashing (yet again). AOL seems to be playing up the “we’re too cute to be mad at” angle big time for Lifestream, a social network aggregation service. Instead of a 404 page, you get the Lifestream fail bunny – an amorphous, round eyed, pink thing. It seems the effect may be opposite of what AOL intends, though – the Lifestream fail bunny practically screams at you to be tormented.
