A lot of us have gotten into googlewhacking lately, so I figure that it probably deserves its own thread. Here are the official rules, copy-pasted from

Visit Google. Submit a query of two words, but don't use quote marks. (Quotes tell Google to find the enclosed words immediately adjacent - and that's just too easy!) Use no punctuation in your words, and no numbers (just 26 letters from A through Z). Find two words that return one result, then see whether Whack agrees (Whack may not see the same results you see). Whack only accepts words between 4 and 30 characters in length. (Any shorter or longer, again, that's just too easy!) To add to The Whack Stack, please respect these simple guidelines (Whack decides; no exceptions).
What are the rules?
Rule Number One: Your two Googlefactors must exist in Google's view of this dictionary. Not your view; Google's view! Google does the work, and Google has the final word! In the blue bar atop your Google results, accepted terms are linked, and so appear 'underlined.' No line, no link = Googlejack! (As in, You've got jack, so see the FAQ :-)

Rule Number Two: Google also is the arbiter of a whack's uniqueness. Look to the right end of the blue bar atop your Google results. If you see "Results 1 - 1 of (any number),' you found exactly one hit = Googlewhack!

Rule Number Three: Google shows you an excerpt of the page you whacked. Look at that text. If it's merely a list of words (such as a bibliography, concordance, encyclopedia, glossary, thesaurus, dictionary, domain names, or plain old machine-generated random garbage), No Whack For You!

That said, let's have some fun... GO AND LET THE GOOGLEWHACKING BEGIN!

It really doesn't seem like misspellings should count.

But then, doing it the right way is harder than I thought.  How the hell are there 44,100 results for saskatchewan tupperware?

More importantly, how are there 73,100 results for social aspie?

Yet only about 600 for antisocial aspie...

EDIT: Oops, other one contained a mispelling.  But I got another one in just three guesses.

My post was relevant.  Yours was amusing.  Between the two of us, we're not half bad.
