Google Fight

Any of you seen Google Fight yet? It's another one of those sites which shouldn't be even mildly addictive, but is. Now I don't mean "addictive" in the way that certain other sites are, but it'll keep you busy for a few minutes at least.

The premise is dumb and simple: type in two words or phrases, and see which one appears in more web pages. There's a cheesy animation too. Tip: enclose any names or phrases in quotation marks. Otherwise, you'll find that Terry Phelan thumps Eric Cantona.

Thanks to Google Fight, I have discovered that:

Death is considerably more popular than Sex.
Jam is favoured over Honey.
Ireland and England garner virtually equal attention (England shades it by 1.3%).
Clinton is bigger than Jesus.
And astoundingly, Love beats Lust into the ground, by a margin of 15:1.

That last one's a bit of a lie, methinks. Despite the hype, it seems that Lust is the love that dare not speak its name.
