1. The sheer tonnage of people who
could be added to that page would crash google for a couple of days, even if nobody hit it.

2. Very funny
while incredibly sad at the same time...I feel less than proud that our *resident is the butt of jokes on a major search engine.

When will this nightmare end?

4. It's called Google bombing
http://www.microcontentnews.com/articles/googlebombs.ht...

<snip>
Adam identified a critical loophole in Google's algorithm. This article I'm writing may be about Google Bombs... but if enough sites linked to it using the phrase "Aunt Jemima," then this article might come up as the first search result for "Aunt Jemima." In other words, the linker can impact the Google Rank of the linkee.
