Description

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/intro/tutorial03/#a-shortcut-get-object-or-404

The get_object_or_404() function takes a Django model as its first argument and an arbitrary number of keyword arguments, which it passes to the MODEL's get() function.

The proposed new wording is just as problematic - the get() method is called on a manager or queryset instance, never on the Model class itself.

I know and agree with that, just changed it as original wording is too misleading.
