Okay, so a while back my wife showed me a cool blog that did this deal they called “Googlie Awards.” I sure wish I knew what blog it was, because I’d love to give them credit for this idea. I tried googling them, but it looks like there are a few blogs that have done this. So sorry, whoever originated this idea. You’re a genius, anyway.
So here’s the deal: if you have a stat reader like mine for your blog, it tells you the terms people are typing into search engines that lead them to your blog. This is handy for learning how to best drive traffic to your blog. Often the terms searched are very predictable, but sometimes they can be downright ridiculous. The Googlie Awards go to the funniest search terms on the key phrases list.
Anyhow, I thought it might be fun to do my own Googlie awards, but for Google’s sake, I’ll re-spell it with a y.
The Making Moments Googly Award finalists…
“How long does it take for something to go down a giraffe neck”
Well, Bob (can I call you Bob?), that highly depends on what you mean by “go down.” If by the term you mean roll down then it’s a physics question. Of course if it’s a bowling ball it might really annoy the giraffe. But if you mean reach the stomach, as in swallow, then I guess it’s an anatomy question. Man, can you imagine being a mother giraffe trying to teach your kid not to choke on their food? As humans, we have about three seconds from the moment of attempted swallow until it becomes obvious if the kid is choking. Poor giraffe mama has to watch for a minute and a half before they know whether Jeffy got his Acacia veggies down or not.
“stinking thinking cartoons”
I could have guessed that my cartoons stink, but I had no idea they could think for themselves. But what can I say? Google knows best!
“important to live ones life the way one chooses to even if it means eating a burger for the rest of their life.”
You know, this one makes me a little more cautious about how I make decisions. I mean, who would have thought that something as simple as making a choice would force you to eat a hamburger? That’s why the advice to never shop while your hungry is not good advice. You have to make choices – lots of them, while you are shopping. It’s only practical to go shopping while your hungry. For every choice you eat a hamburger, and by the time you reach the checkout stand, you’re full! Maybe that’s how we could solve world hunger – just provide the poor folks out there some choices.
“song on big love la la laaaaa”
I wasn’t aware until now of the amazing new technology Google has known as “Google Tune Translator.” If you can’t think of how a song goes, you just sing it into your computer. Your computer then transcribes it into text and does a Google search on the text. Genius, right? Only problem is that it doesn’t really exist. But Bob might just be working for the Google Labs department. If so, I volunteer to be the first to install it in my blog.
They’ve got to be getting close, though, because it got Bob here!
