    It is totally a fake. It's common for people to type in a search with a slight mispelling (ie french military deffats), hit search, type the new text in (french military victories), and take a screenshot. Simple.

    No, it really used to happen on Google when you typed that and hit "I'm feeling lucky!".

    Albinoblacksheep (which was a funny website with lots of flash animations and suchlike) had the following webpage: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/text/victories.html -- and, for some reason, when you searched for "french military victories", this page was the very first page to come up in Google. (either they used SEO to get that page to come up first, or Google did it deliberately as a prank).

    So, when you searched for "french military victories" and hit "I'm feeling lucky!", it would automatically take you to that page, since it was the first hit on Google.

    No, the O needs to be at the top. Then you get the what is really funny about the image.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, what makes that pic REALLY funny is that it's actually the logo for the Office of Government Commerce! http://www.ogc.gov.uk/

    Yes, but notics that google says
    "Your Search for 'French Military Victories'". There is no misspelling.


    It's still fake, just not in that way.

    That french military defeats picture is real, but look at the full image.

    Note the bottom text.
