You only 'get' them if you already know what you are looking for. (In fact, I even doubt this, as this search will be finding a large number of sentence fragments, whose actual meaning might be almost anything: consider for example "This particular plant is a flower that blooms during the day" (from the first Google page of hits) which inverts the class relationship suggested by the match to the "plant is a flower" search.
If you search instead for patterns of the form 'X is Y', you will get an overwhelming number of instances which do not map into simple class relationships. Now, to establish your case, you need to show me how your system will distinguish one kind from the other.
By the way, your example would seem to suggest that the preponderance of evidence (67K rather than 56K) is that plants are a subclass of flowers, which is clearly nonsense.
I would not accept this task. The Turing Test is over-rated, and bears almost no relationship to actual AI work. But this is a poor start for you to make your case, as even a human being could not extract common sense from the entire Web.
