what brings you here?

in Blogs, links, and the like,Silly stuff and bluster

Well, I haven't done this in awhile, so here is another installment in the Idiotic Google Searches series. More actual search strings that brought people to bootstrap…

  • robot chicken farmers
  • natural human popping sounds
  • elder bug secrets
  • news background scratching her crotch picture
  • hairy aquarium parasites
  • what kind of stuff can be found in ears after ear candling
  • digiscoping for idiots
  • mute chicken
  • random invertebrates
  • symptoms of cracked toilet commode
  • hantavirus and poem
  • head lice highlighter
  • Howard Stern's robospanker
  • finding your hair whorl
  • silly radiation worker photos
  • ancient dildo
  • listerine native photos

And I must add a non-bootstrap search, one to my work web site.  Someone was searching for information on the introduced bird species Streptopelia decaocto, and plugged in "collard dove."

Previous installments can be found here, here, and here.

listerine native photos…

*scratches head*

Nope, that one's got me beat!

I can't believe there is such a thing as a "robospanker" or that someone would want to use one. Then again, maybe I'm not surprised.

Heh-heh. A good batch. Some of the searchers might be looking for a one hit google-strike, maybe?? At least that's all I can figure for some of the search strings I get. You ask yourself: why would anybody be looking for this?

I'm honored by a visit from Tom, author of the fine Middlewesterner and the originator of the often sidesplittling World Champion Search Strings (scroll down left sidebar).

I don't remember how I landed on Boostrap; was is through search?

I am glad I read 'Bootsrap Analysis'! One gets tired reading about all those wars and how messed up the world is! Boosrtap is just refreshing!

I don't know how you got here, Basawad, but I'm glad you did! Thanks!

I'm a beginning (backyard) birder. I don't think we have collard doves in Tucson. (Hilarious Photoshopping there.)Your blog's the best. I echo Basawad – thanks for writing about how great the world is and also for your great sense of humour.
