Actually I came up with it by working on the Sudoku puzzle in Sunday's Kevin and Kell. I used two-letter abbreviations to stand for the veggies while working on it, and then I used search-and-replace to expand the abbrevs. to their full forms afterwards.

But I changed
co → corn
before changing
or → orange
which created the word "corangen" nine times in my grid.

As of right now you are the third hit on Google for "corangen". That's startlingly efficient.

Huh? I just checked now, and of the 26 hits that came up, none were this page (or in English!) When I narrowed the search to include only English hits, and only one came up, and it didn't look too English to me from the description!

It heard us talking about it, so Google disappeared our nifty search results!

Google is sentient.

I can see it just fine. Maybe you have Safe Search turned on, and that filters out blog entries, or something like that?

Although seeing as how it doesn't appear to be English, I don't think it counts.
