For all things on the Earth and in the sky, when it comes to searching, we rely on Google to a ridiculous degree (sorry Bing!), but now the spoilsport cheater pants who can’t just play the Kevin Bacon game without taking shortcuts has one very easy way to annoy us further: The Bacon search.

While a number of commenters noted most searches resulted in only two degrees of separation, we did get a three for Mae West.
Color us happy.
