Australia is leading the world for searches on "purple monkey dishwasher".

According to Wikipedia

The phrase "purple monkey dishwasher" is uttered by Edna Krabappel, after a message originating with Bart is passed down a line of people. The nonsensical nature of the comment is similar to the end product of a game of "Chinese Whispers or "Telephone"), where a story or phrase passed sequentially from one member of a group to another is often grossly distorted once it reaches the intended recipient. The remark itself has achieved a notable amount of pop culture recognition as an inside joke between Simpsons fans. A Purple Monkey Dishwasher zine (Modbury North, S.A. : Purple Monkey Dishwasher, 1996-1999) was even published for a short time.
