    The Register has found that anyone searching for 'franchise' in Yahoo! image search, regardless of whether or not SafeSearch is on, will get some very naughty results. The first image results for the seemingly innocent word involve what The Register calls "a young lady entertaining a horse, another not-so-young lady entertaining a chap, and a young man with an improbably large appendage lounging about on a boat." In short, watch what you type when searching using Yahoo! image search.

    I figure it would be a good idea, so that you know what NOT to search for at work :). Besides, seeing this on the front page of TPU brings smiles to peoples faces :laugh:. And it also gives perverts funny ideas...;).

    BAM, there it is.

    Yahoo is the best for image search games. They must have some really fucked up people working there for the weird shit you get back on searches.

    You made a typo in the topic title. You wrote "not" where it should be "".
