I'm looking for really friendly, perhaps even self-effacing and humorous
copy online.

So examples of great, useful and friendly error messaging, interaction
guidance and just the kind of tone-of-voice that makes you sit-up and think
"this isn't a faceless corporate/sale/traditional site experience".

All suggestions hotly anticipated and greatfully rec'd.

John.

(I love the sharks with 'friken' laser beams reference:

And, these comic style application error icons really strike a chord
with me; both humourous and well thought out.

I've pulled some examples together (thanks to those that responded
off-list) and knocked up a quick deck here:

Explanations regarding these examples on request.

Have you see Northface's 404/page-not-found page?
http://www.thenorthface.com/101

It's actionable and asserts the brand.
