Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm talking about the pictures that are shown when human verification is due, or when something is wrong, like this one, at meta :

Humans Are Dead

Would you share the sources of some of those funny images?

I just got the human verification page, submitted the CAPTCHA text, closed the tab and saw the EXACT SAME IMAGE on my screen because this question was in the next tab. Really threw me for a loop for a second. – Pops Apr 13 '10 at 6:30

They all seem to be references stemming from Flight of the Conchords (FOTC) some more closely based than others. FOTC have a TV series that showed up on HBO and do live performances and the like. YouTube has a ton of videos for them.

Specifically Meta's image comes from Jinx; Server Fault's image comes from John W. Golden:

And Super User's image might be Jeff himself???:

The first one was from Flight of the conchords. This is too I think, there's a song by them called Humans are dead.
