Google's Odd Marketing

As you know, Gmail puts ads on the sides of one's e-mail loosely based on the text of the e-mails.

Emphasis on "loosely."

On the side of a conversation scheduling a get-together with the mention of kosher chicken, Google tried to sell me "Chicken Poop" lip balm.

I can't explain it, by which I mean both the product and Google's decision to list it next to my e-mail.
