Broken: Bizarre online brochure

Scott Wenzel writes: "I stumbled upon this link while researching a problem with Javascript and Carriage Returns.... The article has nothing to do with Javascript or carriages; nor are there any mountains in Florida (despite the names shown on maps)."

Update: It appears to be a totally fake site just there to gain traffic and ad impressions. Bleah. -mh

They have a Perl Carriage Return page, Unix Carriage Return, and even a page called Mis Carriage... Frightful.

Oh, that's absolutely wonderful. Gotta love totally misguided Google-spam.

They also have a page for Horse Drawn Hearse, which carries the same copy about "adding romance and elegance to special occasions". Well, OK, funerals are a "special occasion", but romance?!

Also, for some reason, if you view the source code, there's a bit of PHP code (not being interpreted, because it's not a PHP file!) providing a server-side include to a page on a foot-fetish site. Buhhhh?! O.o

And even worse, the "site map" linked from their home page is a whole list of these... well, mis-carriages.

I'm very tempted to submit this one to

I don't think it is really a farm that rents carriages. The photos of carriages have been lifted from other sites and the web page claims to be owned by a company in Los Angeles, which probably doesn't exist either.

It's probably just another weird google manipulating site. Tho hidden footfetish links are a nice touch though.

OK, I have confirmed it. The info of the person its registered to matches the information of a person running a porn site. I'll not give them additional ranking by mentioning them, but those interested can match via google. I STRONGLY recommend that Mark obfuscate the link to their page in some way, perhaps by spelling it out or breaking it up because the links from here probably only serve to increase their credibility for their next scam.

Yeah, should use rel="nofollow" at least...

Posted by: Alden Bates at October 13, 2005 05:06 AM

Ok... that's weird.

I can tell you that the picture's background is not from any part of Florida.

Posted by: kernelpanic at October 13, 2005 08:40 AM

It says call or email for price quotes but there is no phone number. That right there would tip me off that it was a fake.

Posted by: Faolan at October 13, 2005 09:44 AM

wow, i grew up in plantation, florida and i don't remember any mountains like that! just shopping malls and retirees . . .

Posted by: april at October 14, 2005 11:04 AM

That kinda looks like switzerland.

probably is :)

"The Florida"? Come on, they gotta be kidding. Also, I have plenty of family throughout Florida, and that looks more like home, up in greater New York.

The aol mail ink seems to work. Theres no profile associated with it, but when i checked, the "member" was online.

If you would e-mail them, if only to say "Ha Ha, You's funny." wouldn't they get your address, and You could get spam out the wazoo.(put on a spam list)

Posted by: Timm at October 20, 2005 04:52 AM

Well im pretty sure there are some "mountains" in florida, but they would be called hills anywhere but here...

also here's another kinda broken site.. LOL

Notice it says it is in the state of florida, but if you look at the bottom it is in new mexico and florida peak in the florida mountain range.....a little different LOL
