Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (HTCPCP/1.0)
"1. Rationale and Scope
There is coffee all over the world. Increasingly, in a world in which
computing is ubiquitous, the computists want to make coffee. Coffee
brewing is an art, but the distributed intelligence of the web-
connected world transcends art. Thus, there is a strong, dark, rich
requirement for a protocol designed espressoly for the brewing of
coffee. Coffee is brewed using coffee pots. Networked coffee pots
require a control protocol if they are to be controlled."
- Michael Ernest was helping with this text, tell you what.
"HTTP 1.1 ([RFC2068]) permits the transfer of web objects from origin
servers to clients. The web is world-wide. HTCPCP is based on HTTP.
This is because HTTP is everywhere. It could not be so pervasive
without being good. Therefore, HTTP is good. If you want good coffee,
HTCPCP needs to be good. To make HTCPCP good, it is good to base
HTCPCP on HTTP."
- this looks like rationale for Web services to me
"7. Security Considerations
Anyone who gets in between me and my morning coffee should be
insecure."

Yes!

Is this the pot calling the kettle black?

Not really. That would imply that the control protocol might actually have some chance of controlling something. Fat chance.

It's like saying "A wheeled vehicle must be one that has wheels."
Circular reference or what?
I can't help thinking it might be related to this Slashdot story: Coffepot Computer

sometimes I lose a feeling of reality and do not understand which world I am in, is it a joke or what: "x++: XML-Based Object Oriented Programming Language"

Get me the mayor's office! I need to tell her about this tiny ad:
