This post (damn I’m breaking my rules all over the place lately) is aimed at some friends who know what the heck I’m talking about. If you’re not sure, I beg you to please ignore my more-than-customary level of incomprehensibility.
You crazy EFT kids! I saw a referrer today in the magical instant referrer-thingo toy over there on the left that was a Google-search for “I want to f–k stavrosthewonderchicken”. I thought that was odd, but promptly forgot about it when the pizza arrived. Just now, though, I saw a Google search referrer string for efts+want+you+back+stavrosthewonderchicken
and this not only warms my crusty old wonderchicken heart, but it would seem to be a completely new use of Google to send private messages, the recent-referrers doodad being the enabling technology! Congrats, whichever EFT-friends are sending me messages via Google. You be genii! That’s a totally new geekmeme (I wonder if it will spread?) you have unleashed, and at the same time you put a smile on my jaundiced face for the same low low price!
has picked up the idea and given it a name (Google Instant Messaging – snazzy!), and I see a couple new messages in the instant referrer list from her and the mightay Bearman
. This is fun.
Update the second (Jan 30)
: This recent referrer search string – How about a nice cup of shut the f–k up
– may or may not be an explicit message to me, but I seem to be ranked number 2 on AllTheWeb for that phrase, depending on your engine-settings, and that makes me very proud.
Update the next (Jan 31)
: This idea is taking off, at least judging by all the hits I’m getting today. Go Go Google Instant Messaging
! Also, Dan
had an interesting idea
for an extension, which I’m not sure I completely understand, but sounds funky anyway.
Totally unrelated post-script so that this becomes a post about Korea and thus I am not breaking my ‘rules’ : I saw a large ‘cherry-picker’, I think they’re called, today on the street. You know, those big-ass trucks with the extendable arm, at the end of which is a little pulpit for someone to stand in while rescuing a kitty or something. It made me laugh out loud – emblazoned proudly on the side was the name : it was a Hyundai PutzMeister.
I may be way off, but I think that means something quite rude in Yiddish.
