 Robert wants to see porn so he searches for links with rel="xxx"

 Some blogger posted a link to  r o t t e n . c o m and labeled it
 with rel="xxx"

 Robert thinks - oh I found a porn site - clicks the link and spends
 2 hours with vommiting on the floor.

 That could be counted as a creative use ;-)
