Joe Bennett’s private life
No, I don’t know anything about Joe Bennett’s private life. I met him once in Dunedin and he was very jolly, so jolly that even five minutes later he would not have recalled having met me. Other than that, all I know about him is that he is an excellent writer, that he likes dogs, and that I invented him.
I blogged last month about weird Google searches that have brought people here looking for, among other things, images of Toby Young, Ike Turner and Russia’s hairy sausage. (They also come from Eastern Europe looking for images of Emily Perkins, but there is nothing weird about that.) The weirdest Google search to date, I thought, was the one for “hilary barry xmas cake recipe”, which sadly I could not provide.
But someone came here today having typed into Google the phrase “Joe Bennett private life”. That is now the official world champion Quote Unquote weirdest Google search ever.
