Strange search-engine queries (605)

If you’ve seen this before, well, you’re seeing it again. If you’re new to these parts, let me explain: somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 visitors arrive here every month, and most of them aren’t drawn to the place by my alleged brilliance; they’re looking for something. Sometimes those somethings are a little bit off kilter, which makes them worth passing on.

    So you don’t even take national holidays off from your Monday task of listing search queries.

    I checked; “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” is available on Netflix DVD, but not streaming. This is true of many popular (and unpopular) movies, which is why I maintain both a DVD and streaming membership there.

    A category 2 manbaby is a lot less annoying than a category 4 manbaby.

    Usually I set these up Sunday morning. (Don’t tell anyone.)

    And manbabies are pretty annoying, whatever the category.
