We know that Google Ads are sent by inanimate computer servers whose algorithms are cued by words in the accompanying content.

But we still couldn't resist sharing the screen shot of the ads they served up to accompany Roger Clemens' denial of ever having used performance-enhancing drugs, specifically HGH.

Clemens tweets:

I never took HGH or Steroids. And I did not lie to Congress. I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.


Which drew this unfortunately juxtaposed ad:

"Get HGH & Testosterone Treatment w/ Doctor Supervision. Free Consult."
