Clever programmers

You may already know that if you search Google for a UPS tracking number, you'll get a quick link to track the package. Well, this morning I checked on a package and found that some enterprising programmer has added a lot of keywords to a porn site so that the gibberish that makes up the tracking number actually finds a page match. Caveat emptor: I haven't clicked through to that site, so I cannot vouch for what visiting it may do to your eyeballs, computer or anything else. (I also found it interesting that Google's spell-checking engine suggested an alternative spelling for "306 12".)
