This is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google%27s_hoaxes

Various Google services also hide Easter eggs meant to be amusing entertainment.

Searching for "recursion" shows "Did you mean: recursion".
Searching for "anagram" shows "Did you mean: nag a ram".
Searching "ascii art" will turn the Google logo into ASCII art. (Instant must be disabled for this to work.)
Before and during the span of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, searching for various terms which Google has statistics related to, such as "world cup", "world cup usa vs england", or "world cup brazil", causes the result index at the bottom of the page to read as "Gooooooooooal!" instead of "Goooooooooogle"

Never noticed the hoaxes :) I was just start searching something about the "recursion in programming languages" for a small article I was written for a magazine, when I found that :)

Nice one, you have a very keen eye. At least they are not copying results from other search engines.
