Best New Search

The top contender for “best search terms that have ever led someone to this blog” WAS…

“movie review unconscious kidnap”

That, however, has now been replaced by…

“why do laura have to die i dont like isi”

It’s hard to argue with logic like that.

  1. “why do laura have to die i dont like isi”

    what.

    *shakes head* I suppose that there’s a certain type of person for whom Laura would be preferable to Isis. They are, after all, two very different characters.

    Still.. there’s something about that search phrase that really bothers me, and I can’t quite put a finger on it.

  2. I think it’s the tense confusion, lack of capitalization, managing to misspell “Isis” (If that’s what they were going for, and not “Izzy” or something) and the fact that they put a personal opinion into the question.

    I mean, other than the capitalization those other things are guaranteed to mess up your search. Google is not magic, it can’t read almost-gibberish and then parse it into what you actually meant. 😛

    …And now I want to write up other Google searches like this.
    “how do marty kill homs no1 like wstn”

    • …bizarrely (pseudo-ironically?), the Apocalypse Now blog is the second result for that search.

      • …And I fail at using the internet forever, since it’s a link to the Wikipedia article on Apocalypse Now, not a blog about it. (Gragh! Why no edit button! Gragh!)

    • >>>and the fact that they put a personal opinion into the question

      Maybe they searched for some specific post containing this phrase? For snarking purposes?.. (I grabbed the wrong end of Occam’s razor again, did I?)

  3. I’m going to pretend they meant to type “why do laura have to die i dont like isis getting together with this jerk now he’s single she’s too good for him” and they somehow managed to hit “search” insteand of finishing the phrase.
