ask niobe

As part of my ongoing effort to promote peace, love, and understanding, I offer the following answers to questions posed by googlers who, unfortunately, found this blog instead of what they were really looking for:

can premonitions be wrong
Signs point to yes.


microbes that you can’t pronounce the name
How about: Bacteroides thetaioatomicron


insulting birthday rhymes
You really can't go wrong with the classic:

Happy Birthday to you
You live in a zoo
You look like a monkey
And you smell like one too

flemish floral arrangements information
Try this Belgian florist


alphabetical order
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


spice trade for children
Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

wow, it sounds like even google is mispronouncing niobe to make it rhyme with mircobes you can't pronounce.

Sarah said...

just think of the hits you'll get after this post!

Tash said...

I love looking at these. Someone got to me looking for information on cat gallstones. Poor cat. Someone recently got to me researching "Vacationing With Kids in SF." And according to analytics, spent 10 minutes on my website. Bet that's not what wants from her trip, eh?

LOL I feel sorry for the innocents that hit our pages, but at the same time it makes me laugh. Is that bad?

I need to figure out how to look at these searches.

How many cinnamon sticks equals one child?

luna said...

The favorite hit on my blog, "how to quiet crying rashberry". I hope they figured it out otherwise the rashberry may still be crying.

I like children fresh rather than dried ;)

beagle said...

Can you believe I am jealous?

I never get good google hits like this!

Monica H said...

I got hits for "hairy monica pics" and "impregnating your dog with a turkey baster" WTF?

Lori said...

Okay, your answer to "alphabetical order" made me laugh out loud!

Hmmm... "spice trade for children"... I can't really think of any spices I am fond enough of to trade my children for... now, ice cream...

meg said...

Someone found me looking for hairy pregnancy photos. Seriously.

Aurelia said...

I get some weird ones, mostly about turducken. I seem to be the number hit for that....so odd.

I love looking at the google searches that land people on my blog. I have to say, my favorite is, "have to pee, getting desperate." I mean really, I have multiple hits for this. I get the most hits when people search for the AA slogan that is the name of my blog, obviously - but I also get a lot for "inability to concentrate." I don't have the answer to that one.

Coggy said...

LMAO ;o)

Someone found me googling for Bob Dylan lyrics?!? He did send me a nice email though.

slouching mom said...

heh. these are great.

i seem to get ones about kids and peeing. the strangest and most ominous:

"boy pee out of butt"

the dragonfly said...

Nice to know the Happy Birthday song transcends long distances....
