Funky Caching refers to the generation and display of provisional dynamic content when a solicited resource is not available or has been moved. It is also known as ErrorDocument trick, Smarter Caching and Rasmus' Trick[1] in honor to Rasmus Lerdorf (creator of the PHP programming language), allegedly the first one to present this mechanism (although also attributed to Stig Bakken[2]) in which the HTTP Error404 Error Document is replaced with a script capable of generating dynamic content.
