Google Doggerel

I hereby present three painfully awful poems assembled from actual google searches that brought visitors to this precious, precious blog. The lines of the poems, including the titles, are exactly as given, though I did add punctuation.

(H/T Greta Christina)


"kinds of gay sex"

38 speedo trunks,
orca food,
fat man sex,
dismal tide,
narcolepsy and god.


"astounding epiphany"

Surprised by hope,
the golden tongued orator,
the norming devil,
bill maher, dr. evil, and his mexican
doubt in the bible.


"for the love of kathryn erbe"

We've all been raised by television to believe that one day we'd all be millionares and movie gods and
rule by letter of the law, not by the whim of the gavel.
Faith in humanities
doubting religion -- word -- definition --
bible verses -- times of doubt --
calf muscles seizing up --
theology vacuous --
mute button fuck up --
what is the whim of the gavel?
Why is sarcasm funny?
Snake tattoos.


Call it a meme and, if you're so inclined, please consider yourself tagged and perpetuate it early and often.

How did you find out this google search stuff?

Zen, why is sarcasm funny? Why is sarcasm funny?

I got the google search stuff from statcounter, which is a free tool that collects all kinds of rich, creamy details about visitors to the site. And by "rich" and "creamy" I mean "dull" and "colorless," but as you can see from these poems (now timeless classics to be memorized by schoolchildren forevermore), the stuff it upchucks about google searches that landed on the site can be interesting. And baffling.
