Searches of the week, 1.14

One of the generous things about WordPress is that it gives you, every day, a list of “Search Engine Terms”: the phrases people Googled that led them to your blog. I find these endlessly fascinating, at the same time that they create a nagging discontent: for it’s evident that quite a few people, carried to these precincts by the omnipotent Google algorithm, went away disappointed, having found something quite different from what they were looking for. And in some cases, what they were looking for seems very … well, different indeed.  Here are my favorite search engine terms of the week. See if you can figure out what was going on in their brains.
