Sounds like somebody's idea of a joke.

I don't recall if it was Jan or another who inserted a somewhat funny UA into a visit to my site more than a year ago.
I wasn't aware of who had done it, until he mentioned it in sticky.

It did lighten our communication up a bit :)

A joke huh? OK, I'll buy that. It only spidered 8 pages, I'll keep an eye out for more activity.
