The example code for http.client shows www.python.org/parrot.spam return a 404:

https://docs.python.org/3/library/http.client.html#examples

>>> # Example of an invalid request
>>> conn.request("GET", "/parrot.spam")
>>> r2 = conn.getresponse()
>>> print(r2.status, r2.reason)
404 Not Found


However it no longer does that, instead it returns a 301 Moved Permanently.
