I consider it an honor to be the site "lucky" google users reach when they search for witty irony. But it is an honor that I do not deserve.
Please join me, in my efforts to transfer the number one google search result for witty irony to someone who really deserves it. To help me, copy the text below into a blog entry and post it today.
While looking for other interesting googlebombs, Vince Kraemer discovered that his blog had taken the google mantle for <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0170306/">witty irony</a>. <p> He considers it an honor to be the site "lucky" google users reach when they search for <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0170306/">witty irony</a>. But it is an honor that he does not deserve. <p> The master of <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0170306/">witty irony</a> in our present age has got to be <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0170306/">Stephen Colbert</a>, "host" of <a href="http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/the_colbert_report/index.jhtml">The Colbert Report</a>. <p> Please join him, in his efforts to transfer the number one google search result for <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0170306/">witty irony</a> to someone who really deserves it.To see whether we have been successful in confering the mantle of witty irony on Stephan Colbert, you can use this query: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=witty+irony

This is the search that gets fired when I go to google, enter text in the box and press the "Google Search" button.
A more "straight-forward" query still lands the President at the top of the heap: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=failure

It looks like the google engine saw that a number of images contain the image of Sauron, so they showed some of the "greatest hits" for image rank, as well as pagerank.
I like it.

So, I started to watch it. I was having a little chuckle. Then the screen saver kicked in... I bumped the mouse to get the screen back, but Firefox and the video were GONE.
I laughed so hard I started to cry...

If you know, "Do tell."
If you don't, make something entertaining up and share it here (or in your own blog, via a link!)
- It's my shirt. I decide who gets it. Period.
- Once the comment link closes, entries are, too. Think and type fast.
- I will make a reasonable attempt to contact the winner. If I cannot get a mailing address from you after making that attempt, the shirt will go to somebody else.
- If you need to whine about any of this, you probably should not enter.

That lead me to a thought...
What is the fastest time that someone has "solved" the bridges of the Bay Area problem?
This really isn't a variation on the The Bridges of Konigsberg problem. It is a time-trial. The problem is to cross all eight major toll bridges that span the San Fransisco Bay in the shortest time according to your FasTrak statement.
Is there a site that catalogs such a trial? I googled and couldn't find one, so I have got to wonder... Does one exist?
