Is the error message picture for the English Stack Exchange from "Alice in Wonderland"?
Yes it is, same for the 404 page and the CAPTCHA page images.
My guess would be NO, it is from Through the Looking Glass. You see: Alice in Wonderland has playing cards, while the sequel Through the Looking Glass has chess pieces.
