riya does absolutely weird tag

Picked this one off a friend's blog.I'm supposed to Google " (my name) needs" and paste the top ten results I get...I did... and it got really weird. Pardon my asides and interjections within brackets after each result.

1. Riya needs Indiadaily.com!!! (You won't see the fun unless I elaborate on this. The site says: Riya needs help. Sexuality is not just one sided. Lesbian woman should not feel hatred for men!!! Now to tone down the fun, it is Riya Sen that they are talking about!!! Phew)

2. Riya needs Gadgets Page (The software only needs a facial image of 10 pixels to recognize a face, so pictures with 5 or 8 megapixels will provide far more detail than Riya needs - says the site)

3.
Recognizing Deven: Need Rockstar Web Designer (Riya needs a Web Designer who will help us develop and optimize our site user experience as well as look and feel - sure she does.. but temme where the rockstar fits in)

4. Riya needs 1 Million Photos in 2 Days (oh how true!!!!! I have hit the jackpot with number 4 finally)

5. Riya needs Web 2.0 watch: Amiglia marries photos and family trees (does Amiglia marry the photos and trees???? sure i would wanna watch. will web 2.0 help??)

6. Riya's thunder thighs stretching her jeans to the LIMIT!! (Nice pic but chubby Riya needs to watch her snacking screams the link.. yes I HATE Riya Sen now. And also HATE the fact that she was named after ME.. MWAHAHAHA)

7. Riya needs Scobleizer — Tech geek blogger (This sure is a treat after the last one. gimme a tech geek anyday...)

8. Riya needs Print Page - My unanswered Prayer (WOW!! this is amazing. I had asked baba for a printer ages ago... and the prayer remains unanswered to this day !! :P)

9. Riya needs Asia Finest Discussion Forum > Hottest Indian Men (First of all it should have been Asia's NOT Asia... lets not go into the rest... )

10 HorsePigCow:: life uncommon: (OH how wonderful!!! *dances gleefully* This one stole the show. Proves that you mustn't underestimate whatever comes last... 'cause they always save the BEST for last. I don't think I need to explain why this is the best of the lot... OK for the dumb brained and the perverted: it is BEST because the animals in question can be used for transport, as food, and if nothing else, then as objects I can sell..teehee)
