Probably not that many, but if you lived in Goole (population 19,518), you might see how frustrating a problem it can be.
Luckily, volunteers at the Goole Museum have come up with a solution: They’ve built their own custom search engine. It’s called “Goole isn’t Google!” and it’s your gateway to all things Goole.
Need a good vegetarian meal? Why not try the mushroom stroganoff at The Percy Arms? It’s a little pricey, but it sounds delicious.
Is your cocker spaniel looking a bit shaggy? Take it over to Hair of the Dog in nearby Hull.
Goole does deserve a little more respect. It is the U.K.’s furthest inland port, and it’s capable of handling over 3 million tons of cargo per year. It’s also been around since 1826, making it 172 years older than Google.
So next time you’re visiting Goole, England, and want to know what bands are playing at the pubs, or find out if the Goole town Cricket Club has any matches scheduled that day, make sure to visit “Goole isn’t Google.” It’s sure to get you the information you need.
After all, it’s powered by Google.
