I’m sure it’s nothing new to anyone out there who’s been online for any length of time, but people search for the strangest things. From ways to blow up cars to Elvis Presley reading lights. Today, however, one search term really made me sit up and take notice.
Someone had actually hit my site after searching for…
… “una stubbs upskirt”!
I mean, no disrespect to Una Stubbs, but why would anyone want to look up her skirt? And, perhaps more to the point, who would want to? Cliff Richard reminiscing about the happy times they had whilst filming Summer Holiday, perhaps? Or simply someone with an Aunt Sally fetish?
Whoever it was, they’ll have been disappointed; I’ve searched everywhere and still haven’t been able to find a single upskirt Una Stubbs shot!
I did, however, find a girl called Abby who wanted to sell me her used panties.
I blame the credit crunch.
(And, for the record, no I didn’t!)

Anyone who has been blogging even for a brief time will tell you that some of the search terms used to arrive at one’s blog can, to say the least, be rather… well, odd. I monitor mine constantly in order to ensure people finding my site are, largely, getting what they want from it. So when I see the phrase “semiautobiographical” in my search engine term list, or “Kafka and the doll”, for example, I get a nice warm fuzzy feeling knowing that I have helped someone along their way with, perhaps, that vital piece of information they may have needed.
Today, however, I was a little surprised to see among my search engine terms the phrase — or, rather, the question — “What is the best way to blow up a car?” I looked at it, nestled between “deal or no deal June 11” and “current affairs in biology”, and thought, That’s interesting. And it was. There’s no disputing that. So interesting, in fact, that my highly creative imagination started working overtime and I found myself dictating the same question into Google — knowing that the question would not have been answered on my blog, but fairly sure that there would be many, many answers to it out there.
And, sure enough, there were a few! Being an extremely responsible blogger, however, I’m not going to post any links to what I found. Suffice to say, I can now break into, hotwire and blow up a car.
In theory, at least. I mean, me blowing up a car…? The very idea. You just know something’d go wrong… right?
