And the Googlie of the Year goes to …

Dear readers. Seeing as it’s now the close of Annus Horriblis 2008, it’s time for a quick glance in the rearview mirror. Some places vote for Man or Woman of the Year. Others vote for Post of the Year. Still others vote for, um, Worst Banker of the Year. Or Most Spectacular Economic Collapse of the Year [we win! we win!].

Ahem. Here at the Weather Report, however, we’ve decided to go for … Googlie of the Year. We’ve picked our ten favourites [believe me, it was difficult] from the year 2008* and now, dear readers, it’s up to you to decide which googlie receives the coveted title: The Iceland Weather Report’s Googlie of the Year 2008!

Here are the nominees [complete with our old commentary]:

1. should no sex be announced when you first meet someone [West Memphis, Arkansas]
– Yes. Preferably using a loudspeaker.

2. stressed out penis pics (Isle of Wight, Virginia)
– chain smoking, perspiring, yelling at his wife penis…

3. how to take a picture of your own penis
– Point camera. Press shutter. Repeat if necessary. [Gawd. You’d think it was rocket science already.]

4. where penis goes in girl pictures
– somewhere, someplace, sex ed has gone horribly wrong.

5. pictures of penis in virginia of girl (from an undisclosed location in the USA)
– Somewhere, somehow, sex ed terminology … etc.

6. what is the effect of exposing your penis to a girl [Singapore]
– Surely someone has conducted a scientific study…

7. how to use the bathroom in the woods [Atlanta, Georgia]
– um … faen’ place. pull down pans. crowch. yous, er, bafroom. wipe wif leaf.

8. parents forced to walk children down the isle at graduation ceremonies [Nicaragua]
– … at gunpoint.

9. humming sound after flashing toilet [Sewell, NJ]
– weird. my toilet screams when I flash it.

10. before i enter her [Bronx, NY]
– … seek the advice of the Internet.

If you could kindly cast your votes in the comments below, that would be smashin’. Ta!

It’s wery wery overcast and, quite frankly, rather dark out there. The kind of day when it’s a good idea to raise the Venetian blinds fully. Calm, though, and fairly mild – right now6°C [43F], sunrise was at 11.21 and sunset due for 3.38. Day getting longer!

* Mind you, in the last 2-3 months I sort of gave up trawling the site meter for googlies, seeing as they were more or less all for ‘iceland bankrupt’ or something equally uplifting – so these are from our previous googlie posts.

    personally, i love “where penis goes in girl pictures” myself. i’m thinking that some poor geek out there wants to know where, exactly, to cut a hole in the life-size cardboard cutout of “slave girl” princess leia.

    I think number 6 has to be my favourite. To the point.

  • andrea December 29, 2008, 4:57 pm

    I like #1. You certainly have a lot of penis hits. Why is that? 🙂

  • Sonja December 29, 2008, 5:40 pm

    Number 1 gets my vote although number 8 is very good as well.

  • Valerie December 29, 2008, 6:04 pm

    I like #2 myself! Succinct. Thanks for these!

  • God December 29, 2008, 6:15 pm

    Number ten is hilarious!
    That’s my vote.

  • Jon December 29, 2008, 6:46 pm

    #7. In Iceland would the bathroom show above the trees? Finding one shouldn’t be too difficult and using it should not be rocket science.

  • hildigunnur December 29, 2008, 7:08 pm

    Number 9 gets my vote. Hilarious.

  • JoeInVegas December 29, 2008, 7:21 pm

    I just wonder how Google linked these to you. I know at one point you had a pic of your famous mall, but beyond that?
    I think #1, yes, shout loudly and chase them away.

  • Professor Batty December 29, 2008, 9:57 pm

    #4 for me, if only for the fact that it is TWO different equally hilarious questions depending on where one places the emphasis!

  • alda December 29, 2008, 10:06 pm

    Heheheh. Clearly no decisive favourite!

    As for the penis searches – it’s only that one post, I swear! [Plus of course all the subsequent googlie posts referring to penii 😉 ]

  • Schneelocke December 29, 2008, 10:59 pm

    I’d put in my vote for #8. There’s shotgun weddings, so why not shotgun graduation ceremonies, too?

    Of course, #4 is also a serious contender…

  • Grif December 29, 2008, 11:20 pm

    I’ll cast my vote on #6.

    Like Singapore … been there on a (kinda) business trip … long story :p
    Didn’t expose my penis to a girl there though, was told on the plane that over there the penii ( :p ) shrivel and die off when being exposed to girls :p

    #5 would have been even funnier if he (I’ll assume the person is male here) would have searched for “pictures of pennsylvania in virginia of girl”

  • Auður December 29, 2008, 11:34 pm

    Hmmm, 2 or 6?…..I’ll go for nr. 2 🙂

  • nwo December 30, 2008, 5:09 am

    It’s GOT to be #5 about a penis in the virginia of a girl. Sweet!

  • alda December 30, 2008, 10:28 am

    So far number one seems to be the main contender …

  • katie December 30, 2008, 6:27 pm

    #2! Too funny.

  • americangirl December 30, 2008, 7:37 pm

    These are great! I cast my vote for #2. #7 is a close runner up …. although maybe it’s your commentary that makes that one so funny.

  • jpeeps December 30, 2008, 9:21 pm

    No 9 – utterly surreal.

  • Kathryn December 31, 2008, 12:58 am

    It has to be #2 for sure – hilarious !

  • Elín December 31, 2008, 12:58 am

    eeeuuuuwwww. I hope all these guys were typing with both hands. I vote for #1.

  • Allison December 31, 2008, 7:02 am

    It’s got to be flashing the toilet. Me, I find that I moon mine, but I’m a girl.

  • Dankoozy January 2, 2009, 11:58 pm

    this is better than all the politics / doom and gloom 🙂
