Stack Exchange 404 error pages ('page not found') usually have site-specific images, like this one from the main site:

However, the image on the equivalent page on the meta site 404s itself; it leads to this link which is not available: https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/skins/sketchy/img/sketchy-404.png

enter image description here

Is this intended and some kind of 'recursive' joke? Other meta sites don't seem to have this, e.g. Meta Stack Overflow displays a waffle iron in the form of a keyboard.

If you can’t find a page on Meta Super User, you will no longer find a page that can’t find the image to show (it is now using the same image as SU).

Load page, then not found
Error image also gone??
No longer! Try it
