Jar Jar, you're a genius

An interesting tale of the spread of a new mini Internet fad...

On July 3rd Darths and Droids published an episode ending with the phrase "Jar Jar, you're a genius" - and commented that it was a phrase with no Google hits.

Just hours later, it was on Google's Hot Trends list (peaking at #40) and now has 349 hits.

Sadly some of those links lead to malware, and no doubt others will be pure spam. It seems the bad guys always jump on the new trends fastest.
