The Week in Search Terms: Who is the King of Kings?

New, comments

People find their way to the Liverpool Offside using all kinds of search terms. Some of those terms can seem strange, unusual, or just in need of an answer. Here are a few of them.

Paul Kane
lovren dejan lovren

Do you mean that in a Lovren you is easy 'cause you're beautiful kind of way, or is it more of a Lovren, Dejan Lovren as said while sipping a vodka martini thing? And more importantly, what's the point of a vodka martini, really? Most of the time, given the modern tendency to largely omit vermouth from classic mixed drinks they once played an integral part of, it might as well be chilled vodka with an olive. And what the hell is chilled vodka with an olive? Not any kind of a mixed drink is what it is.

reus

Reus.

alienation

Parental alienation? Alienation in property law? Marx's theory of alienation? One is the capacity for the rights to a piece of property to be transferred between parties; one seeks to describe the alienation of individuals from base aspects of their human nature as an inevitable consequence of a class-based society; and one describes cases where a child, often influenced by the negative opinions of one parent, develops an unreasonable dislike of the other. Though not necessarily in that order.

hate hodgson

Right. I know. Hate is a strong word; a strong emotion. And Roy Hodgson hasn't been Liverpool manager for a few seasons now and whatever damage his short tenure might have done, it's hard to blame him for any lingering issues that still might exist. He was here for six months, Christian Purslow was responsible for most of the buying and selling, and he said a lot of daft or just plain tone-deaf things, had a negative approach, and lost a fair few matches.

And now he's gone, and has been for some time. So hate might seem a little much. But we all sort of still do, and the fact that the feeling seems mutual—there's clearly no great love for Liverpool on Hodgson's side—does make it feel a little less petty. Plus occasionally he goes and does something like throwing Raheem Sterling under the bus by telling the press he rested the player because the player said he was tired rather than presenting it as a decision he came to entirely of his own volition.

is steven gerrard better playing further up the field for liverpool

Yes.

levels of furry

I hope you didn't Google that at work. Also, enjoy the rabbit hole. And for the record, I mean that in an Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole in the proverbial sense, possibly through opiate use but in any case not actually, literally a rabbit hole and more a mental journey that leads you to some strange, bizarre, and potentially uncomfortable places kind of way.

who is the king of kings

Who's asking? In Christianity it refers Jesus, while in Judaism and Islam it refers to God. Politically, it's been a title taken on by rulers of ancient Armenia and Persia, as well as in India, where many smaller regions would historically have been ruled by a Raja—a king—who in turn was subject to a more powerful Rajadhiraja—a king of kings. Plus there's Caesarion, the son of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, who was proclaimed King of Kings. He was also proclaimed both a god and the son of god. He was then killed on the orders of Gaius Octavius, who would shortly thereafter become known as Augustus Caesar.

So probably one of them. Or Robbie Fowler. At a stretch it could probably be Robbie Fowler.

interpretative dance of we belong

"We Belong" was a single from Pat Benatar's 1984 album, Tropico. It reached number five on the charts and earned her a Grammy nomination for best female pop vocal performance. And we have no idea what an interpretative dance based on it would look like, though if you figure it out, let us know. Or maybe don't.
