Funny License Agreement

My co-worker was installing a piece of software to evaluate when he came across a pretty funny license agreement:
Welcome to the WordWeb dictionary-thesaurus.

All users may use WordWeb for 30 days for evaluation purposes. After 30 days you may use it only if you take fewer than three flights in any 12-month period (i.e. at most one return flight per year). If you fly more than this you must purchase WordWeb Pro to continue using the software after 30 days.

See licensing for details. All users may also benefit from extra features by upgrading to WordWeb Pro - see wordweb.info for more information and ordering options.

Click Accept to start installing.
I've heard of pretty unique and hilarious license agreements in the past, but this one is the first time I saw one first hand. I wonder if there is a website that lists all the products and their agreements that are funny or bizarre too.

glad i found this page after i googled the following
"All users may use WordWeb for 30 days for evaluation purposes. After 30 days you may use it only if you take fewer than three flights in any 12-month period (i.e. at most one return flight per year). If you fly more than this you must purchase WordWeb Pro to continue using the software after 30 days."

I've installed WordWeb in the past, but this is the first time i paid attention and read what was on the screen instead of clicking next-next-next, and i couldn't believe it. So i searched to make sure that this was not a real thing and indeed just a joke. Nice sense of humour by the owner of this software. I don't take any flights at all, so i guess it is free for me even past 30 days of evaluation. Based on this agreement, i'd really like to pay for this software, to bad im badly in debt.
