Hehehe...  I think the whois program searches for any instance of what you
type in.  The TLD records appear intact and seem to reference the correct
name servers.  NSLookups to different hosts return properly.

I suspect you're just getting caught up in the wonderful world of bad DNS
servers!  :)

While entertaining, I don't think the world is ending quite yet.

I see that whois is wonky, but DNS looks right.
