Great Moments in Google Autocomplete

Many commentators have noted the pleasures of Google Autocomplete for delving into the American psyche. Just see what you get when you type "Muslims are" or "Sarah Palin is." Myself, I'm more partial to the more random search suggestions Google gives, which seem to indicate that our collective consciousness is just as specific and weird as our individual ones. This one, for example, is subtly odd. Why just bachelorette parties? Is there something feminine about the construction "best locations for"?

In any case, the website Gdumb.com used to chronicle some of the weirdest Google suggestions, but they've stopped updating. What's the most interesting autocomplete you've come across?
