*Does this make me old?
**Another reference I’m not familiar with? Or a sign of people who don’t know how to navigate through the results pages?
***Okay, now it’s just messing with me.

  1. You know, the fact that I was doing this at work, where we have the “extra-super-safe-don’t-even-think-about-looking-at-porn” settings on the computers may have biased my results. And I’m okay with that, because that is really kind of disturbing. (Please tell me that Miley Cyrus has her own underwear line, right?)
