Good idea, that's a good example to keep handy too; maybe sub-title it

Incredibly Bizarre World of Google Results

How odd eh? I wonder if it is Yahoo that forced its way into the centre
of the first SERP like that or if it's a hole that Google left open,
left open for them like an ad space of some kind.

Hmmm. After smokin' another one I thought : Why couldn't Google have
enough power to force Hallowe'en to come early. There's a real bummer'
thought. Trick or Treat - Google in the middle of your summer ... wait
... I think I'm messed up a bit ...

Yes, I noticed that. However, they should often be diverse in terms of the
advertiser (never seen 3 from the same domain registrant), be relevant, and
reflect on financial interests. This is just too awkward and there is no
rational explanation that I can think of.

It is likely to be a case of 'Buggeration'. Could we soon see lowercase
buggeration in Webster. Or 'pulling a google', meaning "the process wherein
one deals with zillions (googols) of useless pieces of information (as in
subdomain SPAM)".

Hey! Check it out. Wikipedia is fast.
