When Web Ads Go Terribly Wrong

I took the Dante's Inferno meme quiz years ago, while I was still a grad student and, not surprisingly, I was Wrathful. Now I am less wrathful than I was, but it's still the worst of my high scoring sins, so there I still am, in the 7th circle.

But what really cracks me up is the placement of the ad on the results page:

Dante's Inferno Test--You Have Been Judged
She's Out There...Waiting
Find the girl you've been dreaming of. Why spend another day without her? Find her.
Find a Girlfriend
The wretched King Minos has decided your fate. His tale wraps around his body 7 times.
The sweet light no longer strikes against your eyes. Your shade has been banished to... the Seventh Level of Hell!

Um, maybe that's not the girlfriend I'd want to find?
