Anomoly for number #1 ranking? Sarcasm?

Found this funny tidbit. Is this search engine sarcasm?

Directions:

1. Go to www.Google.com
2 . Type in Failure
3 . Look at the first listing and laugh at what comes up first
4 . Will Google Fix it?

Directions:

1. Go to www.Yahoo.com
2 . Type in Failure
3 . Look at the first listing and laugh at what comes up first
4 . Will Yahoo Fix it?

Checked excite.com and msn.com and the listing comes up as number 3 and page 3, respectively.

I was trying to determine how the search engines were manipulated for this particular term. Here's an article describing such a case.
