“Define An English Person” C-Word Easter Egg or Google F-Bomb? – Search Engine Watch (#SEW)

9 02 2012

An Australian “friend” asked me to Google “define an English person”; so being easily led, I did! The following link pretty much explains my own experience!

“Define An English Person” C-Word Easter Egg or Google F-Bomb? – Search Engine Watch (#SEW).

A similarly witty response used to await anyone entering “French military victories” and pressing “I’m feeling lucky”, but the advent of iGoogle has kind of spoiled that joke a bit.

The final landing page still exists though for those needing a quick laugh: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/text/france.html

Awesome!

I remember once typing in ‘Can I’ in order to ask a question and found one of the top suggestions was ‘Can I get pregnant from my dog’. Which was quite worrying. But yes, there used to be lots of fun with that back in the day.

Quite worrying indeed!

Reminds me of a nursery rhyme:
Mary had a little lamb
The vet he was confused
‘Cause Mary is a Jersey cow
Which means there’s a short-sighted ram running around somewhere

Most people DO laugh over the idea of French military victories. Especially in Canada.
