Yahoo's Top Searches of 2006

Yahoo has them broken down by different categories, but the Top Ten Overall Searches were:

1. Britney Spears
2. WWE
3. Shakira

4. Jessica Simpson
5. Paris Hilton
6. American Idol
7. Beyonce Knowles
8. Chris Brown
9. Pamela Anderson
10. Lindsay Lohan

Some have bemoaned the state of our culture, given that Britney was number one, but I'm not bothered by that at all. What dismays me is that so many people searched for "WWE" instead of surmising that it might just be at "wwe.com."

Meanwhile, I congratulate Britney Spears, for proving in 2006 that sometimes, even without a post-war strategy, "cutting and running" is the
only path to victory.
