For awhile on Google if you typed in "French military victories" and hit search it would come up saying "no results found for your search"

No, you get this with French Military Victories (as one of the search results):

and its a joke, its not a real google page, they're just making fun of how google corrects misspellings.

About the failure thing, its called Google-Bombing:

Its not Google. Its a trick called Google Bombing. Notice the same was done to make Michael Moore come up under "Failure" as well.

yup Jesdas right, its a classic.

I read that google refused to tinker with the search algorithm to 'fix' this
