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."

Yahoo Finance:

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!
