The making of a meme: jukmifgguggh
Someday, people will ask one another "What was Google's hit count when you first searched for jukmifgguggh?" As as a with-it guy, I found out when Google reported 278 results. When I started writing this, it was reporting more than a thousand. Bing reports only two. Poor, sad Bing searchers. An internet meme is born, and they know nothing about it.
The definitive story of jukmifgguggh is yet to be written. It awaits a serious historian who will interview the people who participated in the series of events that began on April 26, 2017. A day which will one day be known as jukmifgguggh day.
Events were triggered at about 8AM Eastern time, when u/pheonixs1234 wrote this post on Reddit's ShowerThoughts subreddit. "Google could be lying about how many search results it gives, [sic] noone's going to actually check that far"
A couple of hours late u/Sufyries responds:
"Challenge accepted: it's true. "jukmifgguggh" did not hold any result and it didn;t"
Within an hour u/Guest_1337 someone else says:
"Not true, I googled the exact same phrase and got one result"
That one result is the prior post.
By the time I learn about jukmifgguggh Google rerports 278 results, There's a subreddit devoted to jukmifgguggh. It's named r/jukmifgguggh.It's got a few hundred sibscribers.
Bing still gives no results.
I go away for a while, return to writing this post, and Google's got more than 1200 results. Bing is up to two.
I edit what I had written, put in links to user accounts and subredits and Google is up to 1500 hits, including several YouTube videos, several explaining how to pronounce it:
And there's an entry in the Urban dictionary and even a few YouTube documentaries.
And now we're up to 1400 hits. And this post will raise the count by at least a couple.
Happy jukmifgguggh day, everyone!.
Update: jukmifgguggh day +1 11:00 EDT. Google: 5,520 results, not yet including this post.
Bing wakes up: 1,500 results
