Funny Google Ads on the top of a Bicycling Forum

These ads were at the top of a different tab I was reading:

Ads by Google
AAA Roadside Assistance
Emergency Roadside Assistance 24 Hours a Day, 365 Days a Year.

Avbros Towing
Need a car towing service? Call today for more information

Google Ads are usually a little smarter

Ads?

I run AdBlock Plus in FireFox, I don't get any ads.

Pretty much any English-language site about Shanghai will have ads like this:

Seems odd that that's even legal!

The jokes here just get funnier and funnier. As I read this thread title, I looked up the top of the page and saw this google gem: New Cycling Forum.

Of course, I clicked, and it took me to www.friedquads.com.

"We can't do anything about it," they cry. "Google is a law unto itself and serves up our competitors' website promotions whether we like it or not."

Unless Jelsoft Enterprises is an IB brand. I doubt it... the site doesn't run ads even for lurkers.
