Funny Google AdWords 

I was looking at my site just now to make sure all the comments I'm moderating are coming through. One of the Google ads caught my eye:

Huge selection of Lisp items.

I had to chuckle. "Huge?" Really?

While extremely tempted at this point, I absolutely refuse to click on my own AdWords. And please don't all rush over here and click on it either. Just smile a winsome smile with me and let's leave it at that.


Believe me, if eBay had a huge selection of LISP items, like, say, Symbolics or Xerox LISP machines, I'd be all over them!


I wish someone auctioned a MacIvory

I once had "Buy new and used programming languages." I think it was ebay, too.

I had a similar experience where my own name had become an adwords keyword.

I had the same experience on my humor blog today. Wife - Browse a huge selection now. Find exactly what you want today. We had tons of others that were similarly funny (see here for our post on the topic).
