http://www.unitedmedia.com/creators/onebighappy/ was able to redirect me to

Bassed on the comment tags, my first guess would be

<!-- start superstitial -->
<script language="JavaScript1.1"
src="http://adsremote.scripps.com/js.ng/site=comics.com&adtype=EXIT_POP&PagePos=1"></script>
<!-- end superstitial -->

I've also had this happen at dilbert.com.

Note that I can only reproduce this if I restart my browser, so I think its
setting a cookie so that I only get hit once.
WFM seamonkey trunk, I see the blocked popup notification icon.

Somehow I turned off my popup blocker.  My bad.
