Britney wallops Shakira in search tussle

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Talent-lite genitalia-flasher and mother-of-two Britney Spears has topped Yahoo's list of the year's most popular search terms.

The demure Ms Spears beat nearest rival, Columbian pop she-devil Shakira, to the 2006 crown.

Spears, who released not one note of music this year, bolstered her campaign by birthing a celebresprog and getting divorced from her unbelievably-less-talented-than-her comedy hip-hop ratfink husband Kevin Federline.

Oh yeah, and a genius last ditch spate of vaginal exposure which threatened to bring down the internet with its sheer PR brilliance.

The Iraq War put in a pathetic performance, not even making the top news story position, which was a battle between the deaths of Steve Irwin and Anna Nicole Smith's son.

Murmurs the internet remains the single-handed surfing dominion of male singletons were comprehensively squashed, however, by the presence of intellectual colossi Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Beyonce Knowles, Pamela Anderson, and Lindsay Lohan in the top 10. And World Wrestling Entertainment. ®
