Misdirection

I'm addicted, as I suspect many bloggers are, to my little Sitemeter, and finding out what web searches are bringing people in here. An unexpected amount are looking for hookers in and around Atlanta.

Yesterday brought a new one -- "fat grill having sxe." That really puzzled me for a moment, wondering what the hell straight edge had to do with grilling, until the light bulb went on, I transposed a few letters and dropped an extraneous "L." And then, my heart went out to the poor confused web searcher -- this guy must have heard all about the cornucopia of pornography available on the internet, but thanks to poor spelling skills, he's never going to find it.

The unexpected part of this story? The person carrying out that search was Chris Chelios

¹ At least, I haven't ruled it out.

Well, he's going to find his porn now. You've just popped his standard search into a blog post.

Next time he goes looking he's going to come across this post at the top of Google's search results, then head straight over to dictionary.com to clarify a few things.

You may well have just changed this poor fool's life. Well done, you!

The Post-Pessimist Association -- putting the "X" in "Sex" since 2006.

nothing is hotter than Dominik Hasek (Czech for "hot sex") re-signing with the Red Wings.

in fact, his last name even sounds like hot sex. i am just going to keep writing hot sex in this comment so you get even more porn referalls from pimply-faced teens in Swaziland looking for hot sex porn hockey porn sex.

Hi gsdgsd13 (catchy!)

Thanks for linking to my blog.

I just wanted to say that my dear departed dad loathed Chris Chelios and if you can find anything bad at all to say about CC, you'll have a happy reader up here.

Thank you, (ze) Nanuk. And welcome to the PPA.

Rest assured I can find plenty bad to say about Mr. Chelios. His cheap-shotty ways, his stupid sneer, his involvement in the death of Salvador Allende, his fixing of the 2000 AND 2004 presidential elections, his love of REO Speedwagon. There is plenty of material.

his love of REO Speedwagon

Really? That's damn serious.

I was gonna mention his collection of Eric Clapton concert t-shirts, but I didn't wanna set you off.

Brushback said...

Hey, you replaced "Uncorking the bottle of regret" within the masthead!

Well, I guess it'll be funny, if only for a few days.

By the way, I think the funniest search ever that led to my site happened yesterday, when I was the #1 result for "Chad Wiseman is an asshole."

I am not making this up.

gsdgsd13 said...

Yeah, the "fat grills" has a short shelf life I fear... after a while it just looks like I'm not terribly literate.

That's awesome about the search. And it raises the question -- how much of an asshole IS Chad Wiseman?

Brushback said...

The search didn't reveal that answer, oddly enough.
