    Erics-Computer:~ eric$ whois aol.com

    Whois Server Version 1.3

    Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
    with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
    for detailed information.

    AOL.COM.IS.N0T.AS.1337.AS.GULLI.COM
    AOL.COM.IS.0WNED.BY.SUB7.NET
    AOL.COM.AINT.GOT.AS.MUCH.FREE.PORN.AS.SECZ.COM
    AOL.COM

    To single out one record, look it up with "xxx", where xxx is one of the
    of the records displayed above. If the records are the same, look them up
    with "=xxx" to receive a full display for each record.

    What this means is that people (using the term loosely) have registered similar sounding names to aol.com, such as the aol. ... .com domain names you saw. whois defaults to pattern searching. If you read the warning text below when you run it, it explains this (at least on my machine). If you use the alternate syntax

    whois "=AOL.COM"

    you'll see that the funny looking DN's have different owners than AOL. If you do the same for Yahoo.com, you get the same results....

    I tried a few and none of them actually had pages - it would be funny to see if any did.
