To be honest, my inspiration well was running dry today so I decided to generate a few Google Poetics. This involves typing words into Google and allowing it to autocomplete your search, then taking a screenshot of the results. You can read some great examples over here at the Google Poetics website. To quote the front page: "Google writes poetry on subjects that people are truly interested in".

I've typed out the results so that the gems are a bit easier to read!

why / i can / how do / why don't

why are firetrucks red
why am i always tired
why are cells so small
why are oil prices falling
why am i always hungry
why am i so tired
why are flamingoes pink
why are goals important
why am i single
why am i so angry

i can see clearly now
i can't think straight
i can show you the world
i can't sleep
i can't stop
i can't even
i can hear your voice
i can sing a rainbow
i can be your hero baby
i can't tell you why

how do i have the same dream again
how do i have twins on sims 3
how do i have a boy
how do i have a baby
how do i have twins
how do i have an affair
how do i have 2 instagram accounts
how do i have wet dreams
how do i have an organism
how do i have two monitors on one computer

why don't we have both
why don't you play in hell
why don't you love me
why don't you get a job
why don't you speak english
why don't you do right
why don't we do both
why don't we have both spanish
why don't muslims eat pork
why don't we do it in the road

    *Very good. Love a google poetic. Do you think there was a bit of google prudery going on : "How do I have wet dreams" followed by "How do I have an orga(ni)sm"?

  2. Jen says:

    *Haha, loved those two Mike, but I must say censorship never occurred to me; I presumed it was just a funnily bad search. Maybe you're right and Google is editing its search results! :-)

    I also love: why am i single / why am i so angry

    and

    i can be your hero baby / i can't tell you why

  3. Russ says:

    *Oh, Mike got in before me! Yeah, I laughed at "How do I have an organism", and the rest I choose to find profoundinism

  4. Jen says:

    *Thanks for dropping by Russ. Yes, or maybe Googleism profundis! ;-)
