I did a verbatim search, which yielded 166 million results. the problem is that "In the town" and "Inside the town" are two completely different contexts, so if you search with quotations, you're filtering an exact phrase. Nobody says "I'm inside town this weekend", which is why he has so few results that way. If that's the argument that Kermit is making, then yes, nobody says that, but I think he's totally misunderstanding the point, as astoundingly simple as it is, I think.

We're talking about inside and outside as prepositions. That's it. If he's unfamiliar with those specific uses of the words outside of them being interchangeable with "indoors" and "outdoors", then that's where the misunderstanding lies.
