When I was a kid, my dad used to ask me 'how do you keep a turkey in
suspense?', which used to annoy me a lot.

I never did find out the answer...

The page is basically a joke, playing on the idea that there is no such
thing as a 100% accessible page; it's blank, with empty HTML source. Given
how many people in the community are viewing on mobile -- or are using
screen readers and are used to theoretically accessible pages that report
nothing back to them -- it's worth being more explicit about why you can't
access the page. :)
