418 I'm a teapot client error response code indicates that the server refuses to brew coffee because it is, permanently, a teapot. A combined coffee/tea pot that is temporarily out of coffee should instead return
503. This error is a reference to Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol defined in April Fools' jokes in 1998 and 2014.
If you received a
418 error in response to your request, it may indicate that the service responding sent the wrong error code. On the other hand, the service may be a teapot.
