Every blogger has them. Most of them are innocent enough but some are downright twisted. As well, some are funny while others are just plain stupid.
What I'm referring to are the search words that people have keyed into Google or Yahoo where my blog has shown up as one of the answers. This happens because some or all of the words they are looking for have at one time been used in one or more of my posts. Google is then kind enough to assemble these disconnected words and phrases into a "result" for the inquiring mind. Because of the tracking software I use, I am able to capture these results that have eventually led people to my humble home.
Given the notion that people have actually keyed these words into an internet search engine, you sometimes have to wonder what was going through their minds at the time.
My friend Lindsay has been doing a similar thing for some time now and I've always gotten a chuckle out of her "customer's" searches. Here's a sampling of what some of my readers have searched on within the last 30 days. If you click on the phrase it will take you to the story that probably led Google to believe I contained the answers to their demented questions.
gummy worms blues - Probably looking for a good antacid after consuming a 5lb bag of these delicious treats from Sam's Club.
freaky friday songs - For when your iPod is not quite full enough.
water buffalo worship - Chief Big Forehead say no story about sacred Tatanka here.
everybody loves a cow music - From the Broadway hit musical, "Everybody Loves a Cow!"
when did father's day start celebrating in Haiti? - About the same time divorced women starting celebrating alimony day in Haiti.
oof dah - A big search phrase from my Norwegian peeps. I'm very popular in Oslo.
Playboy bunny - Now we're talkin! But imagine how disappointed they were when they read that the crows have been biting all their heads off.
all of my life is in your hands jeff lee - Yikes, that's a lot of responsibility! I guess I didn't know what I was signing up for when I started this stupid blog!
peeing women - ONE DAY after posting this last entry I get people looking for peeing women! Holy crap. No wait, I'd better not use that phrase. I really don't want to know who that would bring!
