Kiwis Lead In Internet Sheep And Porn Searches

In line with the stereotype, New Zealanders lead the world in Google shearches for the word "sheep". They're also No.2 for looking up "porn" But, please hold the jokes: Australia is respectively second and fourth on the global list for searching words on the worlds leading internet search engine.

The saving grace for Aussie and Kiwi men is they are No.1 and 2 at typing "girlfriend" in the search field. Rankings for any given word on google's Trends web page launched earlier this year are made according to its percentage of total searches from each country.

Despite the interest in porn, neither Australia nor New Zealand make the Top 10 for "sex", a group led by Muslim nations Pakistan and Egypt. The Tasman neighbor's are also missing from the "romance" search Top 10, which is led by Chile and Philippines.
