Google recommendations leave a bit to be desired

Google's "recommendation" thingy just recommended this image to me. I'm not quite sure why Google thinks I'm interested in seeing demeaning sexist content like this. The purported reason why I would be interested in this codswallop is that I visited both hp.com and google.com. Does Google think that people who use its own site and have some vague interest in HP computers are all sexist pigs?



You might want to work on fine-tuning that recommendations engine, Google.



It also somewhat bothers me that most of the people who have publicly tagged this in del.icio.us have categorized it under "funny", "humor", or both.
