Based on your survey answers so far (be sure to head over there and fill that out if you haven’t already), you’ve found my blog through another. On an average day, the searches that bring readers to Popcorn on the Stove are pretty straight forward. Typically, those terms include the blog name or for a project I’ve tackled (like the bow pillows I made).
Other days, the searches that bring people here are… a little less than usual. I’ve compiled a few of my favorites below that have made me chuckle or say “whaaaaat??”.
1) “Mini patron bottles”
… or “patron mini bottles”, “miniature patron bottles”, “small patron bottles”, “cool use of patron bottles”, “mini patron bottle shots”, and even more. Seriously, there are at least 10 versions of this search. I think it’s time we sat down for a talk… or I figure out how to actually make these and show you.
2) “How to Deal with Bangs?”
Yeah… I’m still trying to figure out. So far this is what I know: dry them first and don’t let them get wet. Also, if they get messy and you lost your comb, pretend you styled them that way. Confidence is key.
3) “This Pig is Wearing Boots” or “Funny Your Reason is Invalid”
Other search terms included: “pig in boots”, “pig wearing clothes”, and “pig in boots invalid”. I completely took this as an excuse to repost this image (found here) via LOLCats. You’re welcome.
4) “Popcorn Lamps”
Okay, after a quick Google Image search, you can buy lamps that are styled like popcorn or popcorn containers. I didn’t realize how popular they were. I’m so behind the style curve.
5) “Gross Wedding Cake Toppers”
Really? What kind of cake are you planning on having? Wait… Joe… were you looking up zombie wedding cake toppers?
6) “I Find You Very Pinteresting”
Why, thank you. I find you very pinteresting as well. xoxo
7) “Program Template for White Coat Pinning Ceremony”
Surprise! I perform white coat pinning ceremonies! Just kidding… I’m not even entirely sure what that entails. I imagine white coats (and doctors wearing them) and pins. Okay, I’m pretty sure I understand it now but I can’t help. My days of presiding over pinning ceremonies are long gone.
8) “What Color to Paint Living Room After We Have Put in a Stove”
… you put a stove in your living room? That is quite the bold statement. I’m not sure I can help you with the paint color without knowing what the stove looks like.
9) “Proper Placement of Pots and Pans on Stove”
Already I have a feeling that I’m doing it wrong.
10) “Secret to Popcorn on the Stove”
Oh, this is awkward. I can’t tell you the secret behind this blog! What? You want to know the secret to making popcorn on the stove in the kitchen? Well, that’s another story. I can tell you that… don’t burn the popcorn (unless you like burnt popcorn, in which case the secret is burn the popcorn).
Are you guilty of searching with odd terms? Do you recognize one of the above items as one of your searches? Anyone else get weird search engine terms? What’s the weirdest you’ve gotten?
