I stumbled across this great website the other day.  Next time need an excuse as to why some critical code exploded in production, simply pop open developerexcuses.com and grab one of these:

Nobody has ever complained about it

I’m surprised that was working at all

Better yet, just write a script that will automatically respond to Skype messages with excuses from this website!
