that reminds me the time i did an internet search for
"succulents" or "succulent plants" and got an X-rated
site among the results.  they were advertising pics of
"succulent" girls.

someone i know in canada who imports and wholesales
tropical fish got many of his emails to customers in
the US automatically rejected by email programs
because of the word "Negro," as in Rio Negro (in the
Amazon, from where many of his fish come from),
because it can be considered offensive.  as if he
didn't have enough trouble with the all the spam
filters inadvertently filtering out his emails to customers...
