Current Twitter trends: Grilled Cheesus, Google Goggles, Gamu, 2k11

"Grilled Cheesus," an internet meme from the hit TV show Glee, takes the top position in Twitter's trending topics on the morning of October 6.

"They should create a special Glee version of the George Foreman Grill that makes every sandwich a Grilled Cheesus" and "I can't accept Grilled Cheesus as my Lord and Savior. It's not that I'm an Atheist, I'm just lactose intolerant" post Twitter users talking about the Grilled Cheesus Glee episode.

Google released Google Goggles for the iPhone - a mobile application that lets you search the web with photos - and microbloggers are running around their houses trying to get the application to recognize random objects in their photos.

"#cantwait," "#alltheseboys" and "#liesyoushouldntfallfor" are in third, fourth and fifth places, just ahead of "Gamu," the name of a talent show contestant on the UK's X Factor.

Basketball video game " 2k11" is in seventh place, American football player Randy "Moss" is in eighth place, and the Dutch words for "good morning" ("Goedemorgen") and "English" ("Engles") are in ninth and tenth places.
