Guaranteed not to cause hair growth in your palms.

Two words: ashplant clippings

Of course, by the very act of revealing these words, their potency will disappear within a finite amount of time, as the Google engine slouches toward our LUSENET Bethlehem to spawn its unholy second child.

Two more: frijoles matricide

Two more: bamboozle haricot

Such a lovely pair: folkways mucilage

And my final answer: insectile hairdos

Hey! This is fun: eviscerate bushbabies

-- Little Nipper (, February 12, 2002.

What in the hell is going on here?

LN, you really should share some of that with the rest of the class or at least moi : )

Cap'n, according to Lars' linked story, the Googlewhacking game is to do a Google search on a pair of words (such as "Borking Polynesians") and have only one web page as your search result. I've been posting some successful examples.

-- Little Nipper (, February 12, 2002.

Would you believe a search on "farinaceous marginalia" is worth two web pages?

-- Little Nipper (, February 12, 2002.

LN, I think some other googlewhacker must have beat you to it :-)

-- Tricia teh Canuck (, February 13, 2002.

Ah! But I am the sole discoverer of "antediluvean dribble"!

-- Little Nipper (, February 13, 2002.

I got this response : Your search - polysomnographic drivel - did not match any documents.


Make sure all words are spelled correctly. Try different keywords. Try more general keywords. Try fewer keywords.

Of course it would now be a googlewhack, right? ;-)

-- Tricia the Canuck (, February 14, 2002.

You should have tried "carmelized isotopes", Trish. Less waiting around.

-- Little Nipper (, February 14, 2002.

I also lay claim to "pusillanimous whelps".

Google perfidiously showed that two web pages contained this pair, but further investigation proved that one of them (an 80-odd page PDF) did not actually contain the word "whelps" within it. Oh, traitorous search engine, mend thyself!

-- Little Nipper (, February 14, 2002.

It is my lucky day. Googlewhacks are breaking out all over. As Google is my witness, "tangential polychromatism" is another bankable winner.

-- Little Nipper (, February 14, 2002.

LN, methinks thou art easily entertained.

-- (a@a.a), February 14, 2002.

Easily entertained? You've hit your head on the nail! And speaking of cheap entertainment: mooncalf forgeries.

If you are out for something a bit more literate, you might find some rather dry entertainment at Ask A Drunk, although a poofter named XStatic Peace has only just appeared and brought down the tone of the place in less than 24 hours.

-- Little Nipper (, February 14, 2002.

The words "lachrymose fondue" gave good results. One legit hit and one one pesky wordlist web page - the plague of the dedicated Googlewhacker.

-- Little Nipper (, February 14, 2002.

Lachrymose fondue?!? Cooking with tears? Now where's the appeal in that?

-- Tricia the Canuck (, February 19, 2002.

Solipstic dirt

-- Tricia the Canuck (j@t.n), February 19, 2002.

Congrats! Although "solipsistic dirt" netted 299 hits.

-- Little Nipper (, February 19, 2002.

What, now you want me to spell correctly too??? ;-)

-- Tricia the Cnauck (, February 24, 2002.

'Your search - "psychopathic business leaders" - did not match any documents.'

This one I found quite by accident!

-- Tricia the Canuck (, July 10, 2002.

Tricia, without the quotation marks and you get 2370 hits.

-- (, July 11, 2002.

I was looking for an article someone told me about that claimed an extraordinary number of top business leaders were psychopathic. I didn't find it, or anything else. Quite a surprise ;-)
