If you have been on Twitter recently, you will have probably noticed the huge influx of Stranger Things-themed header images. That’s all thanks to a certain title generator released earlier this month in celebration of the first season reaching Netflix.

Those data crunchers at Nelson Cash have since released a list of the words most put into the generator, revealing that the internet really is made up of teenagers.

According to the results, the word ‘Things’ was entered 50,000 times, while ‘F**k’ was entered 26,700 times, ‘D*ck’ 11,900 times, and ‘Butt’ 9,500. The fourth notable entry, and perhaps the biggest sign of the times, is ‘Harambe’, entered 9,300 times. Apparently, people also loved typing in their own name, so no surprises there.

Words put into Stranger Things generator, according to Nelson Cash

“Things” was entered over 50,000 times

“F**k” was entered over 26,700 times

“D**k” was entered over 11,900 times

“Butt” was entered over 9,500 times

“Harambe” was entered over 9,300 times

“Nudes” was entered over 4,800 times

“Trump” was entered over 3,500 times

“Clinton” was only entered 523 times

The most input phrases were ‘Manda nudes’, ‘F**k you’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘Stranger Danger’, ‘Fora temer’, and ‘RIP Harambe’. Apparently ‘Manda nudes’ proved particularly popular thanks to a Brazilian fan site, the phrase meaning ‘send nudes’ in Portuguese. As said earlier, the internet is full of teenagers.

Meanwhile, Netflix has confirmed season two of Stranger Things is definitely happening, announcing nine episode titles. The creators have discussed what we can expect from the season, detailing how the first season only touched on the Upside Down.
