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.

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).
