Tuesday Turnip

David K. Israel

It's time for another whimsical Tuesday Turnip search wherein I type a random phrase and we see what kind of interesting factoids "turn-up."

Inspired by the unbelievable array of iPod accessories out there these days, today I decided to see what the search engine would spit out if I typed in "unusual iPod accessories." The results were both interesting and hilarious. If any of you own these newfangled devices, PLEASE let us know how well they work "“ especially the iPod acsexsory at the end of the list, which you really need to see to believe!
