GoogleScout. What the...?
Who thinks GoogleScout is on drugs?

GoogleScout - your favourite bot scout (no, not boy scout) that fetches related pages whenever you click on the "Similar pages" link on any Google listing.

Search on, say, "fish", and you'd expect sites related to fishing, eating fish, and keeping gold fish, right?

Well that's what you'll get, but suddenly you'll also notice, say, sites on atomic bombs, and purple clowns. What the...?

Though we never encourage drug use in this forum, I'm afraid GoogleScout regularly smokes robot crack whenever he's generating these lists.

Anyone else found this?
