Yep, it's a bit flaky at the moment - perhaps it's being hit hard. ;)

Would you believe that the link doesn't work with the final forward slash appended, it gives a 404? It has to be without it :)
Right now at #10 for Today's Hot Trends: google smart a$$

damn when I look at it and see this bachelor getting at the top, does people really see that stuff.

Yeah. I'm in.
Let's ping the **** out of Google.
Btw, just a counter-example for a platform game related query they showed [google.com] ( which gave the impression of a certain microsoft product beating a certain sony product throughout the years )... for in reality it's more like this. [google.com] ...you better know what you're looking for.
I only wish they had regions for "Europe", "North Atlantic", "East Asia", "Oceania" and stuff like that. That would help.
Especially to weed out the queries SEOs make to check on the progress of their sites.

Is it a better move by Google for the webmasters or is it just another strategic implementation of branding for not so popular products of Google.

I think it's called "image management." You know, all that lovable fun stuff that makes Google look all cute and cuddly.
IMHO, it's just a little more of that taste-tantalizing Webmaster Koolaid.

Quick! Design a site for "Paula Abdul's broken nose"! :-)

Wow is that list ever obscure, "Paris Hilton jail time" didn't even make the cut.
But it is the "top-100 fastest-rising search trends". It's much easier for a low-volume term to show a significant increase in search volume.

Yes actually ;)
A coelacanth was caught by a fisherman in India a week or two ago, they were previously thought to be extinct. It lived for like 18 days in a pool or something before it died.
