Infinite captcha' loop

I'm trying to find a contact phone number for a company to make sure they are legit before I buy from them (mixed reviews on Froogle). It wasn't readily available, so I figured I would search for it: phone|contact 111111111..999999999

This put Google into an infinite captcha' loop.

It also works with just the phone number query: 111111111..999999999

I can search for other phrases just fine. Can anyone duplicate this?

I get:

The requested URL /sorry/?continue= ... was not found on this server.

Yep, I got that at first too. Then I kept trying variations of the search and finally Google gave me the finger.
