Hey, the ampersand is pretty cool & shit, no doubt. It was only a matter of time before someone devoted some valuable Web real estate to this venerable typographic entity.

This person clearly loves the Ampersand, & has devoted a little prose in its honor. It's actually kind of sweet.

Although it's not mentioned on this tribute, the ampersand was originally a ligature between an 'e' and a 't', a shortened version of the Latin 'et'. (which means 'and')

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
