contextual nonsense

I now use gmail for my email client and as you may or may not know, gmail actually searches your e-mails and then places contextual ads related to the content of the particular e-mail you have open right next to the email reader on your screen.

So like when I sent my mother an e-mail telling her I bought a Jetta, there were VW ads next to the e-mail, etc.

But one really amusing thing is that a lot of the time, the ads next to my e-mails are for DVDs of "The Complete First Season of 'Kate and Allie'" or "Kate and Allie posters"

(Get it? Kate and Allie/Katie Allison Granju?)

I had no idea the 80s sitcom "Kate and Allie" had such an enduring fan base...
