Is some one able to help with an English translation of these two senryū? I've tried very hard but just don't have enough knowledge to figure them out.

久しぶり! 聞くに聞けない 君の名は

オレのボス ヤフーでググれと 無理を言う

My (terrible) attempts:
It’s been a long time!
I cannot remember, but cannot ask
What is your name?

My boss uses
Yahoo to ‘Google search’
You cannot say that

Thank you!

You seem to get the gist of them. As for the second one, the boss doesn't use it. He orders the speaker to do so.
You know 君の名は is the title of a popular anime, right?

Thank you, that makes sense. Also I should have known that! I've even seen the movie. Thank you for the help.
