    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)

    This is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google%27s_hoaxes
    Various Google services also hide Easter eggs meant to be amusing entertainment.
    • Searching for "recursion" shows "Did you mean: recursion".
    • Searching for "anagram" shows "Did you mean: nag a ram".
    • Searching "ascii art" will turn the Google logo into ASCII art. (Instant must be disabled for this to work.)
    • Before and during the span of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, searching for various terms which Google has statistics related to, such as "world cup", "world cup usa vs england", or "world cup brazil", causes the result index at the bottom of the page to read as "Gooooooooooal!" instead of "Goooooooooogle"

    Nice one, you have a very keen eye. At least they are not copying results from other search engines.
