Let Me Google That For You

When friends and family members ask you to find something for them on the web, what's your sarcastic response? I kind of like "If only there were an easy way to find what you're looking for, you know, like a search engine or something."

If you're polite, you don't say that. Instead, you do a Google search and email them the resulting link. If you're a total idiot you actually refine the search and send them one of two of the best results.

Well, here's website you can use instead. Type in your search terms and the result can be shortened to a tiny url. Send that to your friend. When the click on it they can get the results, along with a message.
