googlism.gifType a name or word or phrase into Googlism, click "Who" or "What" or "Where" or "When" then click "Googlism!" (If you don't get a full page of possibilities, try a more common name. Joyce turns up a full page. Joyce Fetteroll tells me I'm a mom to 11 year old kathryn and wife to carl ;-)

(Note, there may be some beyond PG-13 results mixed in there! Also, unfortunately, Google shut them down a bit after they started so there aren't any new lists being generated but there's a huge list of saved Googlisms.)

Pick several to create a character sketch.
