Honey Boo Boo Among Bing's Top 5 Searches In 2012

Microsoft executives may want to look up "awkward" in their Bing search engine.

That's because the site's top search was the iPhone 5, which is made by rival tech giant Apple.

The 2012 election was the second most searched item.

That's followed by the 2012 Summer Olympics and Hurricane Sandy.

Rounding out the top five was reality star Honey Boo Boo.

Bing is the second most popular search engine behind Google.
