They should have called you Mr [Ljava.lang.String;@83475bcd [Ljava.ang.String;@734afdec.
Obviously both arrays are length == 0. Far better than null, unless the capital N means they have a class Null.

Or a client side code that simply capitalizes the first letter of the word.

One null is bad enough, but 2??? Better start setting breakpoints and get to the root cause Ron!  

But seriously, isn't it good, as a developer, to know that it's not just us that sometimes have less-than-desirable results on our prod servers after we've deployed our code changes, when a big provider like Fido has this issue on one of their servers?

One thing about posting online, it doesn't necessarily convey the intent or tone behind the posted text...I meant that as a bit of humorous joke.
