Please note:

To the person who hit my website after googling, "please google show me kuwait international passport". I give you full marks for courtesy but you won't find what you need on this blog.

To the person looking for, "karl rove bed & breakfast texas" - I can only say these are not concepts I personally have any desire to have linked in my mind.

To the person seeking, "bud light institute cards" - I regret that the knowledge you seek must be found elsewhere.

To the person searching on, "anne coulter is a vapid idiot" - I'm sure I never said that exact phrase, so it seems that Google has some type of psychic ability.

To the person who searched, "smallpocks" - let me point out that spelling is very important. And I have no idea how that pulled up my site, no.

Ditto to the person who searched "sichophant". Kindly bookmark a decent dictionary.

To, " underestimate cheese" - let me promise you I don't.

To the person seeking, "arabs sexual preferences anal" - I'm assuming you searched my site in vain. If you didn't, I don't want to know about it.

I congratulate the person who sought, "harley or cook or drowsiness or impressed or crow" for the eclectic nature of their interests.

Ditto to the seeker after, "enervate or prometheus or multibus or configures or bankrupt."

To the person who wanted to know, "how to annoy people in a grocery store" I hope I was able to be of some assistance.

I don't remember writing anything about how, "automatic elevators really annoy me" but if I did, I'm happy someone cared.

And, to the 26 people seeking information on, "Zena Mahlangu", thank you for caring.

The "search phrases" are really the only statistic that's any fun to see at all, aren't they?

I mean, I'll never know why 10 people sought a "muzzled rotweiller" but I don't really need to, just as I don't know if dozens of seekers after "Democracy" found anything of use on my site. It's an honor just to be searched.

Thank you Anne, that was really funny. I have some good ones too but they are all in Swedish so they wouldn't make sense here. However, after having ridiculed your "freedom fries" my statistics improved considerably through people looking for "French knickers." I hope this helps too.

I can't search on phrases from Site Meter, that's a pay service, so I did it on Extreme Tracking, but nothing really good in the last 20, I fear. Most just wanted to find the Yeti penguin batting game, but a couple apparently want pictures of artist Ron Garney and his girlfriend (both are quite stunning lookers, but I don't think I snapped any photos of them the last time we were together).

yes, but what about the trilateral comission and sexual preferences...

Bengt - You could make a post on french knickers just to give the seekers something to find, but I wouldn't personally pander to those looking for cheap thrills in that fashion.

Elayne - If it weren't for "search phrases" I'm not sure I'd ever even remember to look at my stats. :)

Hugo - You got searches for "trilateral commission sexual preferences"? I'm jealous. Heh.

Not that I would deny anyone a cheap thrill but I really didn't "pander" (what a beautiful word!) to anyone. What I did was just to innocently list all expressions from the Concise Oxford Dictionary that started with "French" and change that to "freedom." Hundereds of people must have done the same thing at the time.
Greetings from Vienna.

Well, pandering would have been funnier, but now that you mention it, I remember that, "freedom" post. It was a good one.

I hope things are going well in Vienna.
