    Hey Alan

    Just outta interest, this is someone 'spamming' the search engines, by 'keyword stuffing'. Basically they research the terms that are being searched for by their target market, then 'stuff' them in a nonsensical page. They figure people will arrive on their page and either buy something or (in this case it seems) click on an ad that earns them revenue from Google or similar suppliers.

    Its a pretty old trick that Google pretty much stamped out, but there's still a few million pages like that out there.

    Fun !
    I need a new job :p
