Flip The Bird Computer Error Alert Symbol

Lighten up the whole "your computer / program / file crashed" experience.
  [vote for,

Currently computer errors are signified by an image of that red dot with an x in the middle, the word "Error", or the frowny face with X X eyes among others.

I'd prefer if it just flashed the bird. Don't know why, just think it'd be kind of funny.

ADDENDUM: When you get any update it allows you to personalize messages. Rude like this, funny, sympathetic, goofy.

       I like that. Can we give our computers a pseudo personality by picking its messages?   

       Hey, those would be my choices, but some people might choose somethign a little more polite.

       I knew a guy who changed the error WAV sound on his wife's computer to play a recording of 'The Brain' from Pinky and the Brain saying "Focus, Pinky... focus". She hated it.
