What are people searching for?

I had a conversation with a friend the other day, a piece of which went like this:

Friend: Do you know who Contessa Brewer is?

Me: Is Contessa her name, or is she some kind of royalty?

Friend: She’s a news anchor on MSNBC.

Me: No, never heard of her.

I don’t watch MSNBC, you see. I don’t eschew it purposefully, but I just don’t happen to watch it. So later, when I had a chance, I did a Google image search to see what she looks like, and whether I might have seen her after all. I haven’t.

But here: Google image search shows me, at the top of the search results, some related searches to the one I made. I’d searched just for the name. Here were the related searches, which I presume are ordered by popularity:

contessa brewer legs
contessa brewer msnbc
contessa brewer cleavage
contessa brewer bikini
contessa brewer body

She’s a news anchor, but all most men want to do is see her legs and cleavage.

Men are such pigs. Damn, but it makes me embarrassed to be one.
