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.
