Just because you don't understand the question, doesn't make it stupid.
Amy Daughdrill
That research could have been just looking at the results Google brings up- it's pretty easy to tell if something is a legitimate "thing."

This book isn't trying very hard, and as a result I'm not going to try very hard with this review.

These authors didn't bother to research any of the "searches" before making fun of them to see if there were actually things that would legitimately need to be looked up. Case in point, they make fun of people searching for "Does a tiger wear a necktie?" Well, if the person was looking for the play by Don Peterson which starred Al Pacino then yes, that is actually what they were looking for, and for good reason. Duh, just because you aren't aware of something doesn't make it stupid.

You know what really grinds my gears? Lazy comedians who make fun of things they can't be bothered to, you know, Google. (Also, even lazier comedians who start self-referential jokes with a really obvious cliche, but that's neither here nor there.)

The premise of this book is fairly interesting -- type partial search strings into Google and pick out the strangest suggestions for string completions. Frequently the authors manage to find something good, but every once in a while they manage to come up with things that, well, aren't funny. And that's where the real humor in this book lies -- the authors missing a pop cultural reference or something like that and making idiots of themselves in front of the reader.

This book isn't trying very hard, and as a result I'm not going to try very hard with this review. There's just not much point in buying it; someone else will probably come up with exactly the same thing a year from now, and likely do it better.

So, the author's intent here is to make fun of stupid Google searches. Aside from the fact that there isn't much to this book, and it appears to be the result of minimal effort, some of the searches which the author thinks are funny are actually quite legitimate. For example When Jesus Came, the Corn Mothers Went Away: Marriage, Sexuality, and Power in New Mexico, 1500-1846 is a well-known book in the field of early American history. It's quite a good book. So, it's not really "dumb" for someone to search Google for "When Jesus Left the Corn Mothers Went Away." A little research would have gone a long way with this book. That research could have been just looking at the results Google brings up- it's pretty easy to tell if something is a legitimate "thing."

This was an extreme disappointment. As I only spent a penny plus shipment I shouldn't complain but if you want this kind of material go to the Whoogle's web page because after you have read a couple of items there you won't need or want to buy this book.

Authors like this have too much time on their hands, we're going to type in a search and see if anything funny pops up and put it in a book...... Just what we need right? another lazy author... i'm going to put minimum effort in this review as the author did with this book. Kendall Almerico please stick to your day job and leave the writing to a professional..

Format: Paperback
"Whoogles: Can a Dog Make a Woman Pregnant...And Hundreds of Other Searches That Make You Ask 'Who Would Google That?'" is a collection of utterly bizarre searches that unknown people have explored on Google along with snarky commentary from Kendall Almerico, an attorney and sports agent, and Tess Hottenroth, a self-described "waif and writer." The book has good and bad points and I wavered between three and four star ratings, eventually settling on four stars for the generally hilarious searches themselves; the commentary is much more inconsistent. Some of the comments are very clever and genuinely amusing, but too many are more suitable for middle schoolers and don't improve on the obvious humor intrinsic in the searches themselves.

Despite the drawbacks, I still enjoyed the book for the often otherworldly searches that people use Google for. Opening the book at random, I offer these representative examples (all errors in originals): "is it gas or am i pregnant;" "ever wonder why ice cubes are so boring;" "when I grow up i want to be a principal or a caterpillar;" "would you say i have a plethora of pinatas;" "i didnt know she had the gi joe kung fu grip;" "france is set to concede that is aware of an alien presence on earth by no later than friday" (which inspired an obvious but funny comment involving Germany); "i noticed i was on fire" (Really? Someone just noticed that?
