What is a “Google Whack”?

do ‘bathetic weasels,’ ‘gusseted hobbits’
and ‘zoroastrian chipmunks’ have in common? Rather than
being characters in some new work of science fiction, they are
examples of a craze that has taken the internet by storm.

Take two obscure and unrelated words, type them into the oogle
search bar and if the result is a solitary web page you have found
a googlewhack.

Googlewhacking, the search for ‘Result 1-1 of 1’ on
the internet’s favourite search engine, has become a pastime
for everyone from bored office workers to lexicographers and even
Nasa scientists.
