What the H?

Question: does anyone else get this if they go to http://merriam-webster.com and search for the definition of a word?



When you click OK, you get the definition, but still- wtf?

If I'm not the only one who gets this, it would appear that some combination of the following is true:

1) Someone learned basic JavaScript and was eager to play with it.
2) Someone didn't realize their play-code would end up on the live server.
3) Someone at Merriam-Webster doesn't keep good tabs on what's going live, or the security on the live server is inadequate.
4) Merriam-Webster doesn't actually have separate development and live environments.
5) Someone- perhaps many someones- will be sacked.
