Misspelling of 'Libya' in search engines causes traffic spike on porn sites worldwide.
GLENDALE, CA – Anxious to find news about the unrest in the country of Libya, eager internet searchers have misspelled the name of that nation and found themselves looking at pictures and posts not necessarily from North Africa.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said adult entertainment mogul Jack de Wilde after all of the servers at his company’s headquarters crashed this past week. “Celebrity nip slips, John Edwards and his mistress, Britney Spears’ weekly mishap--none of them came close to generating this kind of traffic.”
Several sites were knocked off-line while others scrambled to keep pace with the inordinate number of hits they were receiving. “I remember something like this happening last year,” said Internet expert Cody Naultson from his homeroom class at George McClellan Junior High in Pennsylvania. “I was doing a social studies report on the protests in the capital of Thailand, and got some pretty gross search results.”
It has been a particularly hectic week for Missy Crystal. Before entering the adult film industry, Ms. Crystal was a Senior Fellow at the Center for North African Studies, a foreign policy think tank. She has spent the past week fielding questions about Muammar Gaddafi at lotsaporn.com.
It has been just as hectic for noted sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, who has also been inundated with questions about the embattled nation.
