So you think the death of Michael Jackson is dominating all on the internet? Well apparently the king of pop is not the king of Google trends. The Number 1 Google Trend search term for most Friday (June 26th 2009) even as late as 3AM Saturday was “Tippy Tom died”. Tippy was an alcoholic homeless man frequently featured on the “Opie And Anthony” radio show. He died from injuries related to being a drunk bum on the streets of New York City.
Apparently good old Tippy Tom’s death was mentioned on a few big websites. Gawker mentioned Tippy Tom in this article at the start of the fourth paragraph. Fox news noticed with this article. If you scroll to the bottom Tippy is mentioned at the end.
I am a big fan of the Opie and Anthony Show and Tippy Tom was beloved by listeners. What he lacked in personal hygiene and dignity he made more than made up of it with his comedic fun loving persona. He made allot of people happy who listened to the show. He will be sorely missed. I’m sure Tippy would be proud of his Google status. For more about Tippy Top try here.
