A fortnight of hilarity

Our move to WordPress has so far been heralded as a great success in reinvigorating M&G, and quite possibly the greatest benefit of all is that we are receiving quite a bit more prominence in search engines such as Google.

We’ve managed to become the number one result for “Quip of the Week” after bestowing the honour only once, and even that is under review. We also held the I’m-feeling-lucky spot for “Turbot is ambitious brill” before the ephemeral nature of our tagline led us to return that honour back to the HMS Pinafore libretto to which it rightfully belongs.

Inside a ManateePeople with all sorts of inquiries end up at our blog now, including the expected searches like “Vic Toews” or “cpac house liberal canadian”; we shall endeavour to make their search results worthwhile. I’m not sure that we were quite what whomever was searching for “What does a manatee look like?” was after, and quite certain that we offered no enlightenment on “what does it look like inside a manatee”. I suspect someone after “driver faults” would have found either our tech support or traffic law sections somewhat lacking. And what is one to make of “steven harper condoleeza rice sex”?

    Some recent updates:

    “Stephen McKay Condoleeza” – Now it’s a threesome!
    “tall is peter mackay” – And blue are his eyes.
    “how many manatee are left in canada?” – Sadly, the arctic manatee went extinct in 1978.
