in Silly stuff and bluster

Once again, oddball search strings that landed people here at Bootstrap:

  • da da da song in commercial with green couch
  • elderly farting cure
  • birds with 2 heads
  • ear candling in Israel
  • circus cannibalism
  • consequences of eating rabbit poop
  • dunk stool medieval torture
  • hog in a chair
  • contractor low bid humor
  • naked woman and google earth map
  • 101 ways to torture marshmallow peeps
  • asinine cat
  • where to recycle a used commode
  • how to run away
  • hard peck
  • humongous woodpecker
  • freaky moths
  • bighairyasses
  • do baby kingfishers thermoregulate
  • pennyfarting car
  • ghengis khan intestinal gas

And I would like to throw in common search strings that irritate me, for one reason or another:

  • Robospanker.  Yes, I mentioned Robospanker once, and apparently, this is one popular invention.  All I can say is, save your money and use your hand!
  • Flak seed.  People, it’s FLAX seed!  You know — from flax plants, flaxen hair…
  • Kelly Tripucka.  I was going to say, Kelly, quit the vanity searches.  But I actually received a really creepy email from a guy who went to grade school with Tripucka, and he asked me all sorts of questions about my encounter with him. Can you say…unhealthy obsession?  Haven’t had a search since then.

If this lifted your skirt, you can view the rest in the series here, here, here, and here.

Awesome list!!! You should be especially proud of being number 3 on the list of hits for elderly farting cure.

I still get hits on my own blog off your Naked Gardening Day post, always gives me a laugh.

Forget Viagra and Cialis… "elderly farting cure" sounds like a potentially lucrative topic for spamming!

Yeah — who needs old farts anyway?

I am the #1 resource for "steve nash haircut" – this post STILL gets 5 or 10 visits a day. You wonder when (if ever) the people will get over it.

I feel for your Tripucka difficulties. I am similarly stalked by Antoine Walker.

I'm generating some more hits for you from some of these because I just have to find out what the heck a pennyfarting car is. My favorite is "consequences of eating rabbit poop" because you know there's a story there.

Surely there are more than 101 ways to torture marshmallow peeps…?!

People keep looking to me for info on "how to get rid of" various things. But one of my absolute favorites came up today: "mouth to mouth on a fish with a straw".

Yes that was funny but I didn't see it before! Bloglines has really been off kilter lately.

Well, at least someone is thinking about recycling.

And you should know I looked at that "talking to their members" post for a loooong time, trying to figure out why you found it so humorous. Looks like I just needed a whack with one of your magic bricks. Now I get it. I am not nearly as clever as I had thought.

That was a great run down of Google search hits. BTW, 'bighairyasses' comes up with your blog as the first hit. I don't recommend playing around with this one. The search, that is.

For some reason my blog has not made it onto Google yet even though I've tried many many times. Any clues would be great.

Thanks again for the laugh.

Really? [pauses to Google "bighairyasses"] Well, that's disturbing! I can tell you that publishing lists of weird searches does in fact perpetuate previous oddities and spawns new combinations of new ones. It's like a runaway experiment!
