Things that make you go "hmmmmm"

Part of my job involves doing exhaustive searches at stock photo sites like Corbis or Getty. So I input the search word, "old toy" looking for something like an old pedal fire truck or Tonka truck or something along those lines. And that's pretty much what I found. So then I put in "new toy" because I'm working on this spread comparing old toys with new toys. But what do I get for my effort on this one? Several shots of well endowed women in very tight shirts with nipples showing through. Now while I admit those might make for some interesting playtimes, it's not exactly what I was looking for today. Somewhere there is a webmaster with a twisted sense of humor.

Those sites are just screwy. I got some of the weirdest results while searching for things.

Way back when there was still the Stock Market site before Corbis ate everyone up, their site used to read our corporate proxy server as everyone being the same person. So sometimes we would get other people's search results. Just to be mean we would sometimes put in things like "gay couple holding hands" and know some poor schmuck in the higher education office was being forced to look though our searches.
