"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

I Think There's Something Wrong With Google

While it's flattering, I'm not sure this site should be the #1 Google result (out of 4,230,000) when you search for God Damn It.

UPDATE: This site is also the #1 result (out of 3,680,000) when you search for uh oh.

Again: nice, but perhaps not exactly how the world's information should be organized.

UPDATE UPDATE: Thanks to the tireless investigative work of Harry and Grillo, we now know this site is also the #1 Google result for stupid insane evil AND "Hero of the Oppressed".

Moreover, my own inquiry reveals this is not all: this site claims the #1 slot for short stories by Michael Crichton and elizabeth bumiller press conference question.

This is all encouraging, if confusing. Nevertheless, our rankings for both "sex" and "britney spears naked" remain disappointing.

Weirdly, although Google claims that "'it' is a common word and was not used in your search," a search for "god damn" does not turn up ATR. What can this mean?!

You should be proud. I tried to land the no 1. post for "sexual practices + trilateral comission", but all I could get was "Montgomery Ward+ Damascus" which puzzles me greatly.

Maybe there's someone out there with a toaster oven with a lifetime warranty who'd heard that there was a Ward's still operating there that would accept a return..?

You got God Damn It? DAMN IT! I've been trying for the top billing on that for the past year.

You might as well subtitle yourself 'Hero of the Oppressed'. Google has you pegged at #1 there, too.

God Damn It! That stupid insane evil Jon surely is a Hero of the Oppressed! What's next, short stories by Michael Crichton? An Elizabeth Bumiller press conference question?

Just doing my part.
