hmmm, that's a toughy. How about spoofing someone else's cgi-work ?,
and throw in some choice words of my own to wrap around theirs, maybe.
Spoof a cgi-script in such a way that it always crashes, telling the
owner about an error that just isn't there..

The infinite team of monekys with PCs are working on worse scenarios :-)
