Crushing the Frantic Penguins

An entirely pointless and idle detour into the backstreets of randomville. Further to my last post, I was vaguely curious about what googling 'crushing the frantic penguins' would reveal. (I've no idea why. Just because I can, I suppose. Which could be the defining slogan of our internet-enabled world, I suppose).

Not a lot, is the answer, but as always where the internet's concerned, a couple of interesting snippets. Especially the last one, though I'm not sure 'interesting' is really quite the right word for it.

Clearing a giant fatberg from the London sewers. Yeuuch.

And now I'm off to do something slightly less futile than googling phrases culled from horror fiction masterworks.

If one googles "crushing the frantic penguins" now, then the top hit is a most excellent blog by a Scottish author :-)

Fame at last! This must count as one of the most obscure pieces of search engine optimisation ever ... Clearly, what's needed now is a viral marketing campaign that puts the phrase 'crushing the frantic penguins' out there without explanation, leading to thousands of puzzled Googlers searching for it.
