Google Ad Experiment Update

Well, it seems like Google doesn't want to play along. I let it sit for quite a while, and the strangest ad that I saw appear was, "Want To Be A Cop? Protect people with a criminal justice degree." But, let's be honest, that's pretty damn weird. How does that work? Is the degree made of Kevlar? Because I'm fairly certain a bullet could penetrate such a degree. Anyway...

What did we learn from all this? We learned that there is in fact a band named "Vermicious Knid," and they apparently live in Canada (thanks for the info, Dave). We learned that "Angry Fetus" is not a good band name. However, after some deliberation, I think "Happy Fetus" would be an excellent name for a band -- maybe country rock or indie metal. And, finally, we learned that, given the results of this experiment, Google is simply not funny. Seriously, not one S&M ad? Come on, Google, I thought you had a sense of humor. I thought you were cool.

Shortly after writing this and updating my blog, Google sent me this...



Sorry, Google, but it's just not going to happen. You had your chance. You could have been cool, but it's too late now. Too little, too late. The experiment is over. Maybe next time, though.

Note: For anyone still interested in claiming their own domain name, www.poopiepoop.com is apparently still up for grabs.

Someone should buy poopiepoop.com and make it some insurmountably wonderful reference site for grammar school children. Then the world could rejoice as class everywhere is ground to a halt as the children snicker uncontrolably as their teachers are forced to tell them to visit poopiepoop.com over and over and over again.

Wow, who knew that that error message actually meant "we will post your comment 8 times". I apologize on behalf of myself and the internet for the multi-post.

Thanks for the props, buddy.

Google can never be cool; they're run by nerds, not hippies.

aww... poor google.
if you ask me, google sounds extremely desperate! haha.. :p

I once was in a band named poop12, i don't know why really.... We broke up soon after assembling- with a name like that it was innevitable i guess...

 
At 6:24 PM, Blogger Rob said...

Ironically earlier i did see google have an ad for getting a criminal justice degree, it looks like it's gone now though

 
At 7:06 PM, Blogger Walking Wounded said...

Yeah, Google ads are a big waste. Te only time I see actual ads that could generate money are when I preview a page - never on an actual page. its always a public service announcement of some kind! Oh well, I think Google ads will be coming off my blog soon.

Peace.

 
At 9:30 PM, Blogger veronica said...

dude, you're really cool. your blog just made my day.

i was thinking "poopiepoop and the skintoys"?

 
At 9:35 PM, Blogger Shadow of Myself said...

Contrary to your statement that Google can't be cool.. If they actually went so far as to send you an ad like the one you showed us, I think thats pretty darn cool(imho). Not to mention that they have an awesome e-mail service! No comment on that other stuff. :-P

 
At 10:36 PM, Blogger a beer sort of girl said...

God, your blog is hysterical. The Blog version of Fun With Google Ads is more fun than the GMail version I've played with friends. Now you have strangers commenting! :)

 
At 11:17 PM, Blogger defy said...

you funny, man.

other good band names:

seatbelt sally
salty nub
where's wednesday
b-cup babes
greasy eyebrow

all without the ubiquitous "the"

note alliteration works well here.

Your blog is a trip! Now that's humor for ya...

How the mighty have fallen.

So.. the blog, "Things I hate about my Flatmate has posted it's final message today.

And with it's un-timely demise, and ludacrisp popularity.. (Crunch!), it appears that the Masses are on-the-move.

Lookin' for the next BIG thang.

And, of course, looking to Blogger's lovelerly 'Blogs of Note' (bottom right corner) to show them the way.

And they will find themselves here.

So... Mr. Intern.

The virtual spotlight is on you, for the time being.

It's a heavy burden to carry.. but we have faith.

Make us proud.

Potentially good band names with the word "fetus" in it:

-- Fetus Interruptus (metal)
-- Cletus Fetus (This was Mojo Nixon's second choice)
-- Fetus Ultrasound (house)
-- Siamese Fetus (80's pop punk)
-- Orphan Fetus (lame pop goth)
-- Fetus Bastard (less lame pop goth)

There are, of course, dozens of potentially good band names with the word "fetus" in them that are less savory than these, but I'll leave those up to the professionals.

Choose life. :-)

as i looked at the ads on the post page, an ad appeared talking about my hometown. weird.

At 5:23 PM, Blogger - Jimmyjay said...

I once played guitar in 'Puppy Fetus' (just all-around lame)which is eerily close to 'Poopie Fetus'. Course, we later settled on the more marketable 'Orgasm Puppy'.

 
At 5:40 PM, Blogger Lia said...

Hey, what's the matter? You've got it in for nerds and geeks? Google is great! If Google needs someone to protect them with a criminal justice degree (Kevlar or otherwise), . . .

I guess they'll have to look elsewhere. I don't have one. But don't blame Google for stupid ads; they don't write the ads. They just print them. ANd the filters on AdSense are for "family content" if I understood what I read when I considered putting up AdSense.

Oh, yes, by the way, I like your blog. Mostly. You're linked on my blog.

my band's first album was going to be called crazy blinking fetus. then we realized that no one played any instruments. we had really awesome track names and stage outfits though.

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger EmailHosting.com said...

Poopie Poop? Ha Ha! Did Google really send you that ad? They are funny as heck if they did! Ha Ha! Visit my blog and you'll laugh more than a poopie poop good 'ole time. You may even find the domain name in your pants! Ha Ha!

this is brilliant and precisely the reason i wouldn't want to display ads. very funny stuff, though i'm sure you already know that.

I just stumbled across your little hole on the 'net through blogger, and absoultely love your site. the layout is awesome (and sort of got me excited about fixing up my own blog). Your content is original and it fucking kicks ass. Keep it up, i'm going to keep stopping by on a regular basis hopefully!

Hi Andy

From a UK London teacher to a New York Intern, I love your site,mate, and your blog on Google AdSense was hilarious! I'm only wondering what kind of ads the computer would generate for my blogsite now, which is supposedly 'a spiritual journey' but has blogs about terrorist pigeons, IKEA, drunken naturist pics and giving up the drink! Actually I might just try it to see! Keep up the good work, mate.

Take Care

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
