Not to sound stupid but is the 'can has' internet meme talking about lolcats?

Heh, my friends and I talked about this exact same thing a couple of months ago. We couldn't find an internet fad that exceeds "numa numa," though.

BTW, a French blogger is reverse engineering Google Trends in order to get a scale, that is to say the number of queries for each request. If anyone is doing that, please contact me.

Add "Chuck Norris" into that list and see what happens.

Interestingly enough, Yahoo has always been more popular than Google according to the chart.

More popular in searches for it at least, John. Not as many people may search Google for Google (as they're already there) but it makes somewhat more sense to search Google for Yahoo. Even so the following chart is telling...
