Gmail Funnyness

Is Funnyness a word?

I just sent an email to my mother from my gmail account. In it I used the phrase:
“I’m beta-testing a webmail service from google.”

You know how gmail displays text ads based on the content of the mail message you’re reading? Check out these:

They just advertised competative products to their service, based (I can only assume) on my mentioning that I was testing gmail. It just struck me as amusing.
