Joogling: Googlebombing as Activism

Psst....Jew. Pass it on. Background: Norm discovered, through a JP article, that the first result that comes up when you search the word "Jew" on Google is an anti-semitic site. bq. What is a Jew? Those hoping to find out from a Google search are in for an unpleasant surprise. The first of 1.75 million entries that appear when you type "Jew" into the search engine is an anti-Semitic site. This discovery by a New York real-estate developer, among others, has sparked a cyberspace showdown, and a bid to alter the situation by a small band of Internet experts. Norm makes an altruistic call for a Googlebomb. Rightfully so. Kind of interesting that a former Roman-Catholic is spending a Palm Sunday morning Googlebombing for Jews, eh? I think I figured out the best way to do this.
A Lonely Jew on Christmas" by Kyle Broslofski It's Hard to Be a Jew on Christmas My Friends Won't Let Me Join in Any Games I Can't Sing Christmas Songs or Decorate a Christmas Tree or Leave Water out for Rudolph Cuz There's Something Wrong with Me I'm a Jew a Lonely Jew on Christmas Hanukah Is Nice but Why Is it That Santa Passes over My House Every Year and Instead of Eating Ham I Eat Kosher Latkes Instead of Silent Night I'm Singing Hoo Hach Togaveesh and What the [Bleep] Is up with Lighting [Bleep]ing Candles , Someone Tell Me Please ? I'm a Jew , a Lonely Jew I'd Be Merry but I'm Hebrew on Christmas ..........
I'd like to give a shout out to Meryl, who's a Jew, Laurence the Jew, Allison, a lovely Jewish girl, that Jew blogger Aaron, and Allah, who is not a Jew, but likes to use the word a lot. Whether you are Jew, have a friend who is a Jew, married to a Jew, or just like Jews in general, go forth and Joogle! [via Emily, who was profiled by Norm this week]

Adam Sandler might sue you for plagiarism. :)

Don't forget Dave Tepper at Interrobang?!

Gee I didn't even get a mention.

Or my good friend Lesley, at Plum Crazy.

For some reason the rhyme:

I'm a Jew,
a Lonely Jew
I'd Be Merry
but I'm Hebrew

always cracked me up.

I posted some stuff over at honorary Jewess Emily's place. I can do this because I'm and honorary Jew myself - my Jewish friend bestowed the honorific on me.

Funny thing - I was driving around in my Jewbaru, scanning the radio. Landed on a contemporary station playing some shiksa named Jewel. Irritated me, I hate the current junk they play now. But the next station had a Sinatra marathon. Way cool. "Jew York Jew York". "StranJews in the Night" ("Jewbie-Jewbie-Jew" - how cool is that?). I didn't know Sinatra was Jewish. I guess Sammy Davis Jewnior was a big influence on Ol' Jew Eyes.

Phew. I read the next post first, and started wondering what I did to piss off Michele. Phew. Or should I say Jew?

lets not forget micheal siaredsky my friend aviva's bro http://www.jewschool.com/ and http://www.the44.net/
