Alright, this requires a teaspoon of effort
Go to www.google.com, type "failure" into the box (without the quotes) and hit "I'm Feeling Lucky"
Have fun.

Oh sorry, I didn't know, I should have done my research.

Actually, it's an improvement. It used to require "miserable failure" to match - now just "failure" will do the trick. BTW, Google has now put up a statement about it - see the AdWords result on the right (or it was there when I last saw it about a week ago, anyway).
