Google has sense of humor

Just make Google search for “recursion”.



  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.
