Google Instant has a smutty mind

However, the modern-day Bowdlers at Google don’t white you out based on what you type, but on what they predict you’re going to type.

If I type ‘blue-footed’ – it predicts I’m typing ‘blue-foooted booby’ and as ‘boobies’ is an Official Google Smutty Word, my search goes white (in fact ‘blue-foo’ is enough).

Similarly, typing ‘turn again d’ implies ‘turn again Dick Whittington’, and ‘dick’ is a an Official Google Smutty Word.

I love @kevin mark ‘s concept of “Official Google Smutty Word”; does everyone else find it odd that Google does this?
