Oh, for the sake of a missing "r"...

just grabs its results from Yahoo image search, not from flickr, and politely asks

Did you mean: flickr photos?

I guess it's query dependent.

A search for smiling photos
tosses inline results from Yahoo Images.

Pictures happy people
Again, inline Yahoo Images.

Also, as mentioned in the blog post, Funny Photos returns Flickr images

BUT funny images


or terms inverted (photos funny)

does not.
