I just googled “futz” to make sure it was spelled right, and was surprised to find that all the sponsored links were for porn. Strange, I’ve got no idea what the connection is there. Any guesses?

So I was going to link to the search results in mentioning this when I discovered that I got different ad results entering “futz” directly into Google than when I used the search toolbar in Firefox. With Google directly, I get just one porn ad:

q=futz

Coming from Firefox I get 5! Guess Google’s decided we’re a porn friendly bunch.

q=futz&client=firefox-a

Porn ads that show up on Google when searching for 'futz' from Firefox

Update: I’m noticing that sometimes this doesn’t hold true, especially when clicking the links above. Perhaps Google’s taking referrer information into account?
