One of the great things about the internet is finding out there are other people just as sad as yourself. I've had a website hit via Google for the phrase "I never met a luna I didn't like", which is not bad going, since it's a phrase so obscure that it appears on only one other website in the known universe. And what's more, the visitor in question (and possibly the first human ever to search for that phrase) came from Denmark. I've always loved the Danes. They're great.

(I apologise for the lameness of that pun. Unless you didn't notice, in which case forget I said anything).

The phrase in question is a line from the fabulous 'Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie', a film which in the past year has also provided me with the following obscure search engine hits...

"place your hands above the rails - they're magnetised"

"let's slip away under cover of afternoon in the biggest car in the county"

... and about half a dozen searches for the word "interrossiter".

So I'm just waiting for my personal favourite...

"increase the Flash Gordon noise and put more science stuff around"

... and I'll have the complete set.
