Just done a quick search for DMOZ on Google here in the UK and was a little surprised that the AdWords ad is for Adult Toys.

[edit reason] eek - doing our part to stay off those adult filters ;-) [/edit]

Search on .com results in a related adword.
I tried it on .co.uk and sure enough, s*x toys.

Content match snafu?

Thanks for the laugh this morning, Shak - those are interesting broadmatch results.

Hoho - that matching is most certainly 'broad'...

Maybe might be one for Google to manually adjust :)
