Used Kleenex

Apparently, you can find darn near anything on eBay.

When I enter certain search keywords in a Google search box, it seems like I see an endless stream of eBay ads - promising that I can find what I'm looking for, no problem! Unfortunately, sometimes the results are comical if not downright disgusting - and they show the weakness of the ad selection techniques.

Apparently, searching Google for 'used anything' has a pretty good chance of turning up these gems.

Here are a few "interesting" search phrases, and a snapshot of the accompanying Google ads that appear on the search results pages:

Used Air
Used Condoms
Used Food
Used Kleenex
Used Plutonium
Used Toilet Paper
Used Water
Oh, yeah: Google, eBay, and Kleenex are trademarks of Google, eBay, and Kimberley-Clark, respectively. Betcha knew that.


this is really sick!
