"French Military Victories" & Google

Thu Aug 25, 2005 4:00 am

Have any of you googled "French Military Victories" and pressed the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button? It takes you to a page that says, "Did you mean 'French Military DEFEATS?"

If you click on that it directs you to this website:

I think its hilarious, especially the 1st and 2nd Rules of French Warfare.

What do you all think about google's little French joke?

There's more of these. Try typing "miserable failure" and hit the 'I feel lucky' button.

It's got nothing to do with Google. It's a technique called 'google bombing'. For more explanation, see

That's been around for years and the technique is called "Google Bombing".

You can read more about how to do it here.

Type in "arabian gulf" (in quotations) in and i'm feeling lucky.

Type in "miserable failure" in and i'm feeling lucky.

Those are amongst some of the other Google Bombs which still work
