There were no great surprises in seeing what were the most popular words or people googled in Australia in the past year. All the usual suspects : Paris Hilton, EBay, Facebook, MySpace, Britney Spears...

But how weird is this?

The fifth most popular word Australians typed into the Google search engine was, err, 'Google'.

There's plenty of us still having a bit of trouble getting our heads around this whole intertubes thing.

Googling Google is the internet equivalent of the old, confused people who wander into post offices and start shouting "How do I get to the bloody post office?"
