Google has sense of humor

Just make Google search for “recursion”.

About these ads


  1. The problem with Google’s personalised search is that the response you get is not the same that I get.

  2. One of the bests is Don Knuth’s index on circular definition:

    “To demonstrate the concept, Knuth intentionally referred ‘Circular definition’ and ‘Definition, circular’ to each other in the index of The Art of Computer Programming Vol. 1.”

  3. @Graham: did you try it? The joke isn’t in the results, it’s in the disambiguation above the results, which should be the same for everybody.
