For some reason I thought this was going to find typefaces, and I entered Goudy. To be fair, the first result was a picture of the eponymous Frederic W. Goudy.

But not very well.

facecuilsaerch results

vs

google &imgtype=face results

Still, I'm glad they have a face search utility. For some reason.

Dude, Chuck Liddell is hit #2 for pudgy. He's gonna kill us all.

Am I the only one who keeps reading the name of this site as "faeces search"?

Just realized that facesaerch also mixes them up or something because the results are different now. The first search had a stony-faced Elvis come up for "happy".

The about page is way too calculated.

And it doesn't even explain the stupid name.

Google? Real men use GOOSH

That's one of the more annoying user interfaces I've come across in quite a while.

Why would I want to search for feces?

Maybe you need something to throw?

Foiled by Face Swapper.

Despite its complete impracticality, there's something charming about the scrollwheel.
