lmgtfy.com

<humour, web>

A somewhat sarcastic web service that animates the action of searching on Google.

Instead of displaying the search results, the site creates a self-referential URL like

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=GIYF

that takes you to a page showing an animation of the actions of clicking in the Google search box, entering some text and clicking the submit button. It then takes you to the results on Google.

The link is intended be sent to in answer to a question that could easily have been answered by Google. It is a more polite, if long-winded, way of saying JFGI or STFW.

In the belief that it is better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish, the service helps the recipient to help himself while succinctly conveying the message that he is too stupid to use Google.
