Words & Phrases and how they found me

The journalist John Kelly writes in todays Guardian about the weird words that people have entered into the search engines and ended up at his blog and how they are most likely to be disappointed.

  1. long bobs
  2. snow will worsen it
  3. ross on wye witchcraft
  4. good bush bad bush t-shirt
  5. charles 1 civil war kids
