Trending right now

Things trending on Yahoo the evening of January 10, 2012.
Every once in awhile, I look at the trending topics on one of the sites (search engine, social networking, etc.) and wonder what they have in common...it is a hazard of working as a writer. Here is what trending according to the Yahoo search engine right now: iPhone birthday, Manny Pacquiao, She Smells So Nice, Doomsday Clock, tax planning, 7.3 quake, Twinkles, Snoop Dogg, nicotine therapy, and Gina Carano.

Ok, some of these my fertile mind can connect. For instance, tax planning, nicotine therapy, and the 7.3 quake all tie into the Doomsday Clock. Seriously. C'mon, haven't you tried to do your taxes (or thought about your taxes) while trying to give up smoking? If you have, you have wished for an earthquake or Doomsday to put you out of your misery. And Twinkles are also related to Doomsday because they are the ultimate food---guaranteed to survive any Doomsday (asteriod, nuclear bomb, the coming of Raptochrist). Perhaps the birthday of the iPhone is one of the variables that needs to be accounted for when figuring out when Doomsday is going to occur.

What throws me for the loop is Manny Pacquiao, Snoop Dogg and Gina Carano...then again, if you whisper She Smells So Nice in any of their eyes, it might be a Doomsday for you. So there you have it, the only thing trending on Yahoo right now is Doomsday...which makes me wonder how Mitt Romney is doing.
