So Cuil is on its way to fame and glory, and maybe even a couple bucks. The business model remains a mystery, so all that remains is to poke at the thing with a stick. Plenty of search pundits are testing it for accuracy, but I'm already quite satisfied with its entertainment potential.
I'm talking about those sample images with every listing. A few clicks will show you that many of these image matches are not pulled from the pages they lead to. Some sort of Cuil logic is at work here.
Perhaps Carlin's ghost is in the machine - you be the judge.
