" WARNING: some of the below lists may reference pages which contain adult material. If you are not 18 years of age, we ask you to consider whether or not your parents or guardians would want you to be visiting these pages. Please consider respecting their experience and wishes."
Can You imagine a kid being put off by that ?
From the old "Web-Counter Additional Top-1000 List". This used to be the full version of what was later The Web Counter's Top 100 Usage List (Clean Version). By the way, the first item on the clean list (not containing "adult material") was only be on rank 66 of the full list (at the time this was writen).

The following collection is not from "real life" but nevertheless very interesting: The British Press:

  • The Times is read by the people who run the country.
  • The Daily Mirror is read by the people who think they run the country.
  • The Guardian is read by the people who think they ought to run the country.
  • The Morning Star is read by the people who think the country ought to be run by another country.
  • The Independent is read by the people who don't know who runs the country but are sure they're doing it wrong.
  • The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country.
  • The Financial Times is read by the people who own the country.
  • The Daily Express is read by the people who think the country ought to be run as it used to be run.
  • The Daily Telegraph is read by the people who still think it is their country.
  • And the Sun's readers don't care who runs the country as long as she's got big tits.
