Strange search-engine queries (575)

After yesterday’s overblown spectacle, it’s nice to come home and tuck into a few search strings.

Wait, what? It’s Monday? Oh, well. Never mind.

    I went searching for a string, and it led me into theoretical physics. When I got down to the subatomic level, I located my income.

    As it happens, “my woody’s outside covered with snow” is a line from “New York’s a Lonely Town,” a hit by the Trade Winds (Red Bird 10-020, #32 in Billboard, 1965), in which a California surfer dude who’s been relocated to the opposite coast bewails his fate. In the half-century since this came out, I never once thought of the, um, alternate definition of “woody.”

    Which is not the case with the Angels’ “(You Can’t Take) My Boyfriend’s Woody.”
