More Debbie Downer stuff and related links

A few weeks ago I made this post about the noise on the SNL skit, Debbie Downer. Since then I’ve been getting a lot of hits from searches looking for variations on that topic, such as

  • debbie downer
  • debbie downer
  • debbie downer wav file
  • saturday night live pictures debbie downer
  • debbie downer sound effect
  • “debbie downer”
  • debbie downer saturday night live
  • download debbie downer sound
  • debbie downer download
  • “Debbie Downer” + “sound”

So I decided that I would Google a bit to see how far up on the search list this post had showed up, and it turns out that search for plain old “Debbie Downer” (sans quotes) it was 10th out of 33000! It makes you wonder why there are so many results over a skit that for all intents and purposes barley finished due to laughter from the cast (thanks to Jimmy Fallon).

I started checking out some of the other results associated with Debbie Downer, and found a few interesting links.

Google Search results

  • First result – A script of the entire skit, with laughter notes Link
  • Third Result – An article by some guy who wanted to extol the benefits of the cast cracking up. I have always found the laughing skits more interesting than the others; it was one of the traits that made Jimmy Fallon endearing (they even made a joke about it in the apprentice skit). Link

Google Images Search results

  • First Result – An expected result, a picture of Debbie Downer. Link
  • Second Result – The real life Debbie Downer. Link
  • Third Result – I’m not sure how this is related to Debbie Downer, but I wish the picture had not been pulled off the server. It’s a picture of what I think is the Debbie Downer Bike team. Link

I also got a few hits for people looking for the noise that Stephen Colbert’s God Machine makes on the daily show. I did a few searches for it but I have yet to find out what the noise is actually for, although I’ll keep looking. I’m a huge fan of the God Machine, mostly because it’s a very politically charged phrase, just like ‘the Military Machine’.
