Googlephrasing — fun for the whole family

In addition to googlisms, google bombing, googlefighting and googlewhacking. We now have googlephrasing.

As defined by Mark Hurst at, "googlephrasing is the search for a long slightly obscure sentence fragment, enclosed in quotes, and then revealed in the Web-zeitgeist'". While this is not necissarily new I believe Mark may be one of the first to try to define it.

Enough with the formalities, on with the fun. The following examples were swiped from Mark's site.

"i've always wanted to go to"
Boston (she has no idea why)
South East Asia
Italy (he has a huge Italian family)
San Francisco (to study ESL)
Jamaica (for a honeymoon)
The Great Barrier Reef (to go swimming there)

""is the best movie i've ever seen in my life"
Lord of the Rings
8 Mile, American Wedding
Moulin Rouge
Life is Beautiful
Varsity Blues
The Matrix
Pearl Harbor.

"surprisingly, i actually liked"
Mozart's Symphony No. 30
Bon Jovi playing Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World."
