Google Trends April 29, 2008

Today's Google Hot Trends are odd. Especially the top 20. You know, for such a wide variety of search topics, presumably made by people who want to know more about said topic, we sure are a nation of idiots in a lot of ways. Go figure.
  • #1 keoni kai lucas (Apparently the co-founder of the Puinsai Clothing Company. Yep, right up until his car collided with a tree in Santa Monica, CA on April 27, 2008.)

  • #2 homophone (Seriously? Number TWO Hot Trend of the day? A homophone?)

  • #4 hcg diet (Extreme calorie reduction along with injections of human chorionic gonadotrophic hormone, the hcg. Huh. I see.)

  • #5 anwar (That's it. Just anwar. WTF?)

  • #6 charles nelson riley (The gay Match Game guy? Again, WTF?)

  • #8 butterfly with hiccups (No clue. Sounds too cutesy for me to even feign interest.)

  • #14 def leopard (This one I can fathom. They were on 'Dancing With The Stars' tonight, which I cannot fathom. Clearly a new phenomenon to most doing the trendy searching as it is spelled Def Leppard.)

  • #17 a full cup (Please don't ask of what? I don't know.)

  • #42 synonym of too (At NUMBER FORTY TWO?!?! OF HOT TRENDS?!?!)

  • #87 john daly shirtless (I've seen it. Trust me. It's not pretty. Avert your eyes. Never look directly at it.)

  • #100 american idol april 29 (They did Neil Diamond songs. Paula thought they did more Neil Diamond songs than they actually did. Oh, like you're surprised?)
