Google Bombs

Given our recent success at google bombing how about a page, regularly updated, of all of the best ones? So, if you know of a decent google bomb please email me or post it in the comments. Here are the few that I know of at present:

Our own:

"fuckwit" (John Prescott)

Then there’s put "smug c*nt" into google images. (Tony Blair)

The old "weapons of mass destruction" seems not to work any more.

"French Military Victories" still works just fine. (Surely you mean French Military Defeats?)

"Opportunist" provides some political balance. (Michael Howard)

"miserable failure" (Variously GW Bush, Hillary Clinton etc. Varies over time)

"Waffles"(John Kerry)

"talentless hack" now points to the page that ran the campaign, not the target.

"santorum" was started, I think, by a Village Voice writer (actually Dan Savage, whose column appears there).....and they’ve done it the hard way round. Not a little used and derogatory phrase pointing to a well known name, but a well known  name pointing to a derogatory site. That’s very difficult.

"ignorant asshole"  (Cal Thomas)

"Swivel eyed loons" (UKIP)

"Proud of Britain" (Spoof of the Labour Party site called that)

Please send in any and all that you know about!....this is a non partisan request. Not worried about the politics or targets, just want to know which ones are out there.
(There’s one pointing to the Christian Voice page isn’t there? something bigots? Anyone know?)

Wikipedia is also good on this. But not as up to date as us, of course.

Update. From the comments, "gastrointestinal dysentery" provides a restaurant that  fired the server for blogging. Quite wonderful, and keep the information coming in.

The 'spreading santorum' campaign was started by Dan Savage who writes the syndicated 'Savage Love' column.

Couple of others - 'swivel eyed loons' (coined originally by Anthony Wells) now points to the UKIP site, 'proud of britain' points to the spoof site, not the Labour one and 'veritas kilroy' should point to a spook site rather than the party's one.

Yes, the weapons of mass destruction one stopped working in November 2004, after about 18 months. Very sad.

'gastrointestinal dysentery' brings up the name of a restaurant in Orlando, Florida that fired a server for blogging.
