Googlewhacking

Yet another way to pass the time on the net when you're bored.

Googlewhacking is the game of typing 2 words into the google search bar and trying to find a pair that only returns one result in the search list.

I came very close today with pomegranate hovermower which comes up with two results. (But I suspect it's disqualified anyway because Google asks "Did you mean pomegranate hover mower?")

It also leaves you wondering where on earth you dig up all the strange words you try!

So... can anyone beat 2?
