Worrying statistic: hare vc hair

I am alarmed to discover that Google has 51 hits for the phrase "chase a wild hair [sic]" but only 39 for "chase a wild hare", which, it should go without saying, is very obviously the correct spelling. Life is very strange.

Edited to add: Per tortoise in comments I tried again and got 403 hits for "hare" and 59 for "hair". Which is a little more reassuring.
