What you're missing is that these are the results of searching google Finance for those words.

OK, so Google Finance beta search needs help. Now what?

Happy coincidences. Lawrence J. Pope is Halliburton's VP of Human Resources and Administration. Also, Google Finance factors in blog posts in the search results; more than one blogger out there has used the term "douche bag" in a post about Tyco or "hatred" in a post about Fox News.

That said, it still makes me giggle.

This reminds me of when people made a big deal about how the MS Word thesaurus would respond "I'll drink to that" if you put in "I'd like to see Bill Gates/the Jews/the Blacks dead."

Crazy

Yahoo Finance:
"Schizophrenia, depression, and other mental disorders afflict millions every year. For their ailments, there is professional psychiatry. For their banking needs, there is Crazy Woman Creek Bancorp, holding company for Buffalo Federal Savings Bank, which also operates as The Bank of Gillette, The Bank of Sheridan, and First Bank. Through four branches in northeastern Wyoming, the bank serves individuals and business customers of various mental states. Lending activities consist mostly of residential mortgages and commercial real estate and agricultural loans. Online banking is also offered."

Dou**e bag

Why the stars? Is douche a bad word now? (If so, someone better alert the French.)

Meh -- I chickened out.

Freedom bag?

If you want to take a few good words like thieves and make something good out of them, take a look at the words used in the company summary field and use them to write up something amusing.

For instance:

This security company's hackers introduced worms inside the network. Thieves!
