Give them what they want?

This, of course, will add more ammo to the firefight between those who say we need to listen to the public more and those who say if we give the public what it wants, then civilization as we know it will crumble.

Gord Hotchkiss rounds up on MediaPost (free sub. required) the top-search lists from Lycos and Yahoo.

Lycos
Paris Hilton
Pamela Anderson
Britney Spears
Poker
Dragonball
Jennifer Lopez
WWE
Pokemon
Playstation
Hurricane Katrina

Yahoo
Britney Spears
50 Cent
Cartoon Network
Mariah Carey
Green Day
Jessica Simpson
Paris Hilton
Eminem
Ciara
Lindsay Lohan

As Hotchkiss notes, Google does it differently with categories. But he says Janet Jackson, Brad Pitt, Spears and Michael Jackson are among the top news searches.

The French and Germans aren't any more intellectual in their searching, he says. And as for his fellow Canadians: "For seven months out of 12, we're searching for Hockey."

OK. Ready. Aim. Resume firing!
