(Newser) Google Instant makes searching faster by automatically completing what you’re typing … unless it’s dirty, of course. The folks at 2600.com put together a comprehensive “Google blacklist” of words the search giant thinks are naughty, from the apparently innocuous (“servitude”) to the downright confusing (“hedop”). A sampling:

  • nipples
  • asian babe
  • naked
  • pamela anderson

  • white power
  • dirty pillows
  • ball gravy
  • tushy
  • style doggy
  • porn
  • twinkie
  • 4chan
  • sexy
Of course, if you really must search for one of the above words, you can always just type them in and hit “enter.” See the complete list—or the possibly even more interesting list of words that haven’t been blacklisted—here.
