Typing "" into your web browser turns up a rather curious surprise. Rather than info on the mayor, the site is a bizarre, psychedelic display of Vincent Gray heads floating through space while Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" pulsates around them.

The site's creator, who asked to be identified by first name only, bought the domain "randomly" last year and let it sit idle "until I was looking for a way to procrastinate one afternoon." Brendan, a D.C. native who works at a Web firm, told Yeas & Nays that it took less than an hour to create the site, which is drawing 10,000 hits a day. He says he is not a Gray supporter "for a litany of reasons" and would be willing to sell the domain for $653,800, as it's "a nice round number." (It's also the reported cost of Gray's alleged shadow campaign, which is being investigated by federal prosecutors.)

Gray's office did not respond to requests for comment.
