Sometimes practical jokes can backfire which is what took place with the online news site Buffalo Beast which went offline after publishing a prank phone call that was supposed to be between Wisconsin Governor Scott walker and a Buffalo Beast editor that posed as David Koch.

Paul Fallon, the publisher of the Buffalo Beast reportedly told the Huffington Post that the audio is “absolutely legit”.

The website appeared to suffer from too much web traffic which so overloaded the system that visitors went to an error message instead.

The error messages say “Error establishing a database connection.” and another says “The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.”

The Buffalo Beast which was founded in 2002 in Buffalo, NY went online from a newspaper to web only in 2009. It also has made the news in the Wisconsin protests before. Surely it will continue.
