One of the great joys of running an internationally acclaimed website is the fan art that I often receive from Latin America. Another joy is seeing the search terms people plug into Google to get to this site. The top 3 terms people used to get here for the month of February were: goulash, edible soap, and Captain Eo. If you think about it, you can sum up the entire site with those three items, and I am proud to call them my top 3 google referrers. Not only that, but those are probably the three most searched for items on the Internet, so it's quite a coup for me to be so high in all three searches.
There's no point in even analyzing the first one, since everyone knows who dominates the discussion when it comes to that hungarian treat. You can just stuff it in a sack and boil it when it comes to searching for goulash. Regarding edible soap and Captain Eo, I don't talk about those explicitly that often. They've come up occasionally, but I'm far less obsessed with them than I am with Carlos, the Goulash Bicentennial, and the Skunk Ape. Edible soap and Captain Eo are definitely in the spirit of goulash, though. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to make a goulash t shirt, it could be Captain Eo both bathing and eating some edible soap. So, search terms #2 and #3 lack a literal connection, but they are majestic all the same.
Now for the next three: Britney Spears sex story, goulash cody, and Tito Jackson. That's a good trio in its own right. Just imagine me and Tito Jackson getting together to read a Britney Spears sex story; it's almost violently arousing. I think I brought the Britney Spears Sex Story upon myself with this story, so I can understand why the perverts flock here and then send me enraged death threats when I disappoint them. And if I daresay if there's any search term that ought to be point here, it's goulash cody. I can't even name another Cody who has anything to do with eastern European cuisine! For google referrer #6, I don't think I need to say again that Tito Jackson always has a home here. I'll make an honest woman out of you yet, Tito.Posted by Cody at March 1, 2004 6:33 PM
