Hmmm, looks like some sort of bot that takes the words in
your search and stuffs them into its response. I wonder
if they realise how silly the results end up sounding?

I've seen these sorts of things before, but I haven't
quite figured out yet how they manage to get into Google's
database if they're auto-generated. Anyone have any clues
what goes on?
