If you want to send glitter bombs to your enemies anonymously, you can -- courtesy of an Australian website -- except the site appears to be down. Major news outlets were quick to write about the site that would allow people to send a massive glitter bomb to people they can’t stand after it became a top-trending topic on Alexa, but Twitter users were dismayed to discover that the site wasn't working.
The traffic boost might have also come from Reddit, the Inquisitr noted. It soon became a hot topic on the forum and garnered nearly 1,000 comments from Redditors after being on the site for less than a day. “It'd make the post office fabulous!” one person wrote. “I want to be able to upgrade to a box of glitter with a spring loaded dispersal system,” another added.
When netizens try to access the glitter bomb site, which is aptly named "Ship Your Enemies Glitter,” the dreaded 403: Forbidden code appears. People don't want to hear they “don't have permission to access / on this server,” especially when there’s the “herpes of the craft world” to send to people you can’t stand.
SYEG colorfully explains why they chose glitter to send people, as per the Inquisitr. “We f*@king hate glitter. People call it the herpes of the craft world. What we hate more though are the soulless people who get their jollies off by sending glitter in envelopes. | We’ve had enough so here’s the deal: there’s someone in your life right now who you f*@king hate. Whether it be your sh*(ty neighbour, a family member or that b*(ch Amy down the road who thinks it’s cool to invite you to High Tea but not provide any weed.”
When the site does come back up -- and it probably will, just be patient -- people will be able to send their foes glitter for about $8 to $10. With such an affordable cost, netizens could ship glitter to multiple foes.
Twitter users were quick to complain that their new favorite website was not operating correctly. Some of their messages have been posted below:
