Right on the money.

I just tried a couple of these live search monitors for the first time:
very amusing! Maybe I didn't use the funniest or most popular ones, though;
can anybody recommend a particularly good one?

As expected, about 50% of queries seemed to be related to "sexy" stuff,
from "[expected young pop singer] nude" to some, uh, specializations far
from the mainstream. Many stupidities.

And I learned some things: for example, I'd never before heard of Pontius
