If you go to Google.com and just type in [I am] Google will then offer as the third suggestion, "I Am Extremely Terrified Of Chinese People" as a search suggestion. This is not new, it was reported back in February. But back then, you had to type in [I am extremely] to get this search suggestion, now all you need is [I am] to return the search suggestion.

Here is a screen capture:

Yes, Google's search suggestions are completely algorithmic. But Google has been known to remove search suggestions - unlike their policy for not removing search results.

What's even funnier is that the top search results for that query are sites that like FailBlog that are commenting on that same query.

The result is funny. I wonder, do so many people really search that term because it appears on the search suggestion?

Google also suggests "Chinese people eat babies" when you type "Chinese people" http://www.flickr.com/photos/46564929@N05/4275313193/
