Strange search-engine queries (361)

Welcome to Monday. It’s time once more for a spirited romp through the system logs, in search of whatever it was you were searching for. We won’t ask why you wanted it. (Maybe.)

Bone Thugs n Harmony never won a grammy due to the judges being fairly matched against one another. No idea maybe the asker should provide a better question:  Sorry, Thugfans, but the Grammys haven’t meant squat for at least fifty years now.

1963 song on radio with the line “and today is the 23rd of may”:  This was probably “Shticks of One and Half a Dozen of the Other,” which, if it was ever played on the radio at all, was played by Dr. Demento, which wouldn’t have been in 1963.

    I get all that Mazda stuff because I once wrote up a tedious little FAQ on which model has which transmission. It comes in waves.

    no doubt, but that’s not the point.
    “Gray Mazda” is a buzz-phrase familiar to Israeli IT-guys; for some reason IT-employers there include leased car into compensation package for their most prized programmers and soft engineers – and the car of choice, inexplicably is a gray Mazda. There is a whole sub-culture of jokes around it, even a pop-song.

    and btw, what’s the deal with grEy and grAy? google says grAy 580mln times, while grEy – 180mln.

    “Grey” is usually thought of as British usage; having spent time in an actual prep school founded on the British model, I tend to come up with that first.
