Odd Traffic Sources

Another picture of the "giant crabs" I wrote about.

It always interests me to see what search words bring people to my blog. Most are pretty straightforward, but sometimes weird combinations show up in my Traffic Sources. I jotted down a few of the ones I thought were fun and share them here with you.

adam richman skinny legs slurred speech
Wow. I did write about hearing Adam Richman of “Man vs. Food” speak, and included his joke about skinny jeans, but this searcher seems to have been looking for some celebrity dirt. Sorry -- I didn’t dish any out.

bathroom spying spyware
So, so many searches that included words about ‘bathroom spying’ led people to my blog. It’s a little scary how many people want to learn how to spy in bathrooms. My blog titled “Bathroom Spying For Dummies” must have been a HUGE disappointment.

feet tickle sticking out
I thought these words were pretty weird search criteria. I highly doubt that the person searching this (who I can’t help but picture as a foot fetishist) wasn’t really looking for my account of spending the night ghost-hunting at Waverly Hills Sanitorium.

does it smell in Nicaragua
Why yes, it does. That’s exactly what my blog was about. Hope I answered this searcher’s question.

history of tuesday mary go round pic
Another weird search combination. I don’t know whether the searcher was looking for the history of Tuesday? Mary? Mary Go Round? (Did he really not know it’s Merry Go Round?). Regardless, I don’t think he found what he was looking for in my travel piece about the Merry Go Round Museum in Sandusky, Ohio.

attire to national chemistry week
This search made me giggle. What does one wear to National Chemistry Week? Lab coats? I was simply writing about hating high school Chemistry.

another name for mother in law
Dangerous search here. But my use of the phrase “another name for mother in law” was just part of a fictional story about a manipulative woman who was based on a real person, but NOT my mother-in-law!

giant crab attacks human Australia
Yikes! I wrote a fictional story about this. Did it really happen?


  1. I laughed so hard I almost cried when I read some of these! SO funny. My search keywords are so boring.

  2. My fav is "does it smell in Nicaragua" so random, it sounds like something I would ponder!
