The Road Not Taken

I've been seeing a lot of interesting Google search queries in my stats lately. It's one of my very favorite things about sitemeter, and I'm always really disappointed when there aren't any weird ones in the day's data.

Here are some of my favorites from this month:

jack burton kurt russell sheets of hot lead I have no idea what this means or why "sheets of hot lead" landed someone here, but MB loves Big Trouble in Little China, so I'll keep it on the list for his sake.

Klause the kickboxing instructor Uh...I got nothing.

how to suck an egg through a bottle If they mean "cause an egg to be sucked into a bottle," I can actually help. Otherwise, this sounds kind of borderline perverted.

living with an engineer HA! I could offer a few helpful pointers.

rhythm gymnastics pantyhose Whaa?

battery man that flips egg Note to self: patent battery-operated man-shaped egg-flipping device quickly. Someone has been spying!

apple maggot quarantine area signs I was perplexed by these in Washington State last fall, and it's sort of comforting to know that I wasn't the only one.

dear internet, please heap shit on Eragon for our amusement I can't even add to this. It's glorious on its own.

glad.i.don't.have.testicles I've had this one before, but without the emphatic extra punctuation. Incidentally, I'm also quite glad to not have testicles.

crappy glasses This isn't that exciting, except for the fact that I'm apparently the #1 Google hit for this search query.

Geology Shirts and the closely related geology onesie A big shout-out to the person who used the onesie query, because it led me to this:

boy-child nutrition vs girl -child nutrition Inexplicably, I'm the only hit for this one.

egg salad, best, taste of home Sometimes it just seems cruel to not have an egg salad recipe in the sidebar somewhere. I feel like such a tease.

AOL search: cocaine ring in Woodinville Hey, man...we were just there for the wine.

AOL search: 80's barbie style dolls with animal heads That sounds more like a meth-bug-type problem to me.

And, completely at random, here's a video of a cat defending its snack against the dog, apparently from some Germany's Funniest Home Videos type show:

Thanks mucho to evilducky, for sending me the animated gif version earlier today :D

    Oh how I love Google searches. Really brings out the crazies!

  2. i happened to take a look a while ago and was thinking you needed a post like this pretty desperately. the eragon one was fresh then.

  3. I still think it's slightly creepy when other people browse my sitemeter! :S

  4. I EXTRA LOVE WITH CHEESE to look at the Google searches!!! Those are the BEST.

  5. Clearly I'm just not talking about enough interesting subject matter on my blog... I even started a category for posts about the weird google searches that landed on my site, but since then I swear people only find my site by googling about CDiff...

  6. okay. see. mother freaking blogger ate my comment AGAIN.

    boo hiss poo piss. i commented. it just hates me.


  7. it was just once, and i was curious since you seem to get a lot of traffic.
