I watched Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure last night, which was brilliant. All day at work I've been trying to find one of my own, but alas I was unsuccessful.

Anyone found their very own Googlewhack?

Now, i've heard of Dave Gormans Googlewhack but i don't know the concept of what a "Googlewhack" is? Care to explain please?

re: Googlewhack

A Googlewhack is a Google search query consisting of two words, that returns a single result. These words have to appear in, Google's dictionary of choice.

Evening jofus, Dave Gorman is fantastic. He gets these mad ideas and challenges that just fall into his lap, and the way he runs with them is absolute genius.

What has it done to the graph?

Is eggbound really not in the dictionary?

Eggbound sounds a bit rude to me.
