There couldn't be any answers to this question because this question was put on hold by Doorknob.

From Meta.SE:

What does it mean for a question to be closed?

When a question is closed, no additional answers may be posted to it, although the question and existing answers can still be edited (by users with edit privileges or by suggested edit) and voted upon, and will continue to count for badges. The asker of a closed question may still accept an answer.

Closed questions can be re-opened by users who have sufficient reputation.

What does it mean for a question to be on hold?

If a question has been closed, then for the first 5 days, it is marked as “on hold” rather than “closed”. This is meant to convey that the question requires improvement and may be reopened if improved. During this period, if the question is edited by the asker (now by anyone), it will be added to the reopen queue. Other than this, there is no functional difference between “on hold” and “closed”.

Please not reopen the question or delete my answer because we all love fun :)

    $\begingroup$ LOL Not what I was expecting thanks to @Doorknob but I guess it'll do now. $\endgroup$ – warspyking Nov 30 '14 at 15:58

    $\begingroup$ @warspyking - I was going to say the only possible answer is 'on hold', since any interesting lateral-thinking question like this will get some mod or other putting 'on hold' in the title after the question! (And the odds are this comment will mysteriously disappear too :-p ) $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Nov 30 '14 at 16:02

    $\begingroup$ @JulianRosen it's possible to answer closed questions about 2 hours after being closed with simple JS trick. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/91922/… $\endgroup$ – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Nov 30 '14 at 16:07
  • $\begingroup$ What is wrong with my answer, let me know? It seems to be correct... $\endgroup$ – nicael Nov 30 '14 at 16:24
