Let’s take for example my own search the other day. Like the good blogger that I am, I was Googling my most recent book “What Happened to Anna K.” After typing just “what happened to” hilarity ensued. Google suggested such enlightening options such as:
- what happened to seal’s face
- what happened to steve from blue’s clues
- what happened to drew brees face
All important questions. (I must admit that they did pique my curiosity. In case you were wondering, Drew Brees just has a birthmark on his face.) It’s only fitting then that just a few days later I discovered a website called GDumb.com. It’s a whole compendium of screenshots featuring these funny Google suggestions. In other news, I am easily amused.
In the course of writing this post, though, I did find practical value in the Google auto-complete thing. I wanted to take a screenshot of the Google fun but couldn’t remember how to do this on my Mac. All I had to type was “how to ta” before “how to take a screenshot on a Mac” popped up in the first slot. Thanks, Google!
