Help me remember a word association game

I rememeber playing a web-based game circa 2009-2010. It started out with a word like "farm" and you had to guess words related to the word farm. Words like "ox," "rooster," "tractor" unlocked new boxes, and you could guess more words related to those. This network expanded further and further out into theme-based squares in a larger board: so there was a "magician" box, a "Britain" box, etc. Does this ring a bell for anybody? My googling is turning up nothing.

Best answer: I'm on my work computer so I cant link to it, but it was called Funny Farm. If you google Funny Farm word game, you'll find it!

Wow this must've gone down in the past month or so, because I definitely played it recently! Now when I click on my bookmark, I get an error page.

There was a metafilter post about it in 2006.
