Inter-nit Search

Web Surfers Get A Head Start

Is Hollywood up to scratch? Movie lovers and parents with nit-infested kids were the biggest groups among Australian net surfers last month. Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson, head lice, the citizenship test and Transformers 2 were the words and phrases that gained the most searches on Google.

FOOTNOTE: Lice, damned lice and statistics.

Hmmm. Nits in Australia? Kids have been back in school for about a month there, right? Sounds about right.

Epijunky said...

I'd be lying if I didn't admit to searching "head lice" at least once or twice on google.

Damn those nits. Thank goodness that mess is over with.

Great. Now my head itches.

Wow. Maybe I should go to bed and read in the morning. I had to read this four times before I processed that it did NOT say that Scarlett Johansonn had a problem with lice. Yikes!
