Searching for The One

The post from our buddy spoon reminded me of this website: Googlewhacking: The Search for The One True Googlewhack. The idea is to find a combination of two or more words with more than 3 letters and used in prose which have exactly one google hit. I propose a contest to find the most original/amusing whack using at least one linguistic term. Things like "phonetically lame". The rules are here. Send your submissions as a comment. Entries (if any) will be judged by the other Expling members (yes, I volunteered them). As we have no budget, the prize will not be monetary, but we will think about something. But hey, the winner will be known as the The Great Linguist Whacker. Good luck.

I'll start by offering one close to my heart:

"neologic Deaniac"

This string--without the quotes, of course--brings exactly one result. This was, incidentally, my third try at this contest, so hey, I'm feeling pretty good about this so far :)

(And also, LO, what's this with calling me your "buddy spoon?" Spoon?! Gee whiz, if you had to abbreviate, you could've at least called me your buddy "Neo." Like Neo in the Matrix. =) )

Hey! I got it to work on my first try. My first word was "semantic" cause I been thinking about this lately. My second word was "duck" because ducks always make me smile, and I know a coupla funny duck jokes. My string was "semantic duck". The lone Google result can be found here:

The only problem is, the semantic duck at this URL is not the quack quack duck but one of the other kinds. An unquacking duck.

My good friend MH and I found some rather timely Googlewhacks:

Islamofascist molerat
necrophiliac Deaniac
zemmiphobic duck
wahabi capybara

(While each of these pairs generates exactly one Google result, some don't satisfy all the rules as stipulated on http://www.googlewhack.com/rules.htm)

Oh bummer. I just realized I did not follow the rules with the "semantic duck" above, as I used quotation marks. I do have a new whack though that follows all the rules:

performative hydrostat

This one even sounds like it might be a little bit nasty!

I was so proud of my whack "performative hydrostat" that I tried to record it on the GoogleWhack site. However, since mentioning my whack on the ExpLing comment above, my whack is no longer a whack, as now Google records TWO hits for it. I was robbed.

Yes, this connects to my earlier post about how Google captures all, and how that issue ailed one diligent SHEW professor and his TA. Once you record your Googlewhack somewhere online, Google finds your Googlewhack and it is no longer a Googlewhack. You've been robbed, whooped, whacked. Googlewhack-wacked. Googleshot. Metagooglified.
