Possum’s Box, google searches and a hint for Pollies
Posted by Possum Comitatus on June 14, 2008
The Possum Box is up and running with a couple of articles, and the RSS feed on the top of the left sidebar here has been added to make it easy to keep up with new articles as they’re posted over at the Box.
One of the consequences of having a rather wordy blog is that all sorts of google searches send people to these very pages – mostly looking for political stuff, but as you would imagine – often not.
For a while now I’ve enjoyed a little ritual of sitting down on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon with a glass of wine and have a bit of a giggle perusing the search engine queries that sent people to Pollytics. Since the readers and commenters really make this site as much as anything I ramble on with, I think it’s only fair that the strangeness and joy of google voyeurism be shared with all
These are some of the better ones I’ve had over the last little while.
sniffed my cousin’s bra
possum shooting+ result graphs (You need to graph that?)
“he needed a piss”
suck my possum
brendan nelson raccoon (The possibilities of that one)
qantas trip a fawlty towers fever dream
election calculator cash drawer (very appropriate in these boondoggle times)
possum ratsak ( Hmmf)
do possums eat duck heads (only when slow roasted, served on a rosti with a red wine jus)
possum terror (That was Dennis )
blather “piers ackerman” (Now who hasn’t thought that?)
woman discovers possum living in her vag (WTF!?! Holy Smokes Batman!)
That last one is a bit disturbing.
Oh, and a hint to the pollies reading. When you’ve been busted for something like drink driving, speeding, running a red light, various traffic offences or other bouts of law breaking and you wake up the next morning in a cold sweat, worrying whether it’s all over the media – if you go to google and search “John Citizen MP”+ “drink driving” for instance, people like me can see your search.
It’s probably not a good idea.
I’m losing count of the times that I’ve seen some search on a pollie and their indiscretions, only to see it all over the media a few days or weeks later. You might want to keep that in mind eh?
