Amusing results from

From the BBC search monthly newsletter, (i’m sure they won’t mind)

What our users have been asking us

Some searchers still type natural language queries into the search box, rather than selecting a few keywords. While this may not always bring the searcher the best results, it does provide some amusement when reading through our search logs.

Here’s a small selection of the best user queries in 2004, unedited:

– what is a dog?
