Tribe goes Googlewhacking!

Let's start a Tribe game. Post your googlewhacks.

What is Googlewhacking? It's when you search for two words on Google.com and it comes back with only one result.


What are the rules?
Don't use quote marks within your query! Quotes tell Google to find those words immediately adjacent - and that's just too easy! As you whack, please respect these simple guidelines:

1. Googlefactors must exist in this dictionary. It's so easy to confirm: Google does the work! In the blue bar atop your Google results, accepted terms are linked to dictionary.com, and so appear 'underlined.' No line, no link = Googlejack! (As in, You've got jack! :)

2. Google also is the arbiter of a whack's uniqueness. Look to the right end of the blue bar atop your Google results. If you see "Results 1 - 1 of (any number),' you found exactly one hit = Googlewhack!

3. Google shows you an excerpt of the page you whacked. Look at that text. If it's merely a list of words, No Whack For You!

There was a CNN wrap about it on the 6 o'clock news on Thursday.

When I was dubbing it I saw the words "DOGSHIT CHALUPA" quickly scroll past.. haha

DOGSHIT is a valid word eh?

If you put your whacking combination on another website, wont that make it come up with two results the next time?

"tumor and cringe inducing taco bell ads"

Results 1 - 1 of about 4. Search took 0.33 seconds

The "about 4" all belong to the same website, so technically there is only 1 result :)

I just finished reading the book 'googlewhacking' by Dave Gorman. He travels the world to try and get a chain of ten googlewhacks, where each person in the chain finds him two more and he goes to meet these people. Its very good and exceptionally funny. I definitely recommend it.
