About 30 to 40 percent of my daily traffic is a small but apparently enthusiastic corps 0f regulars, some of whom have been coming by for more than a decade. Most of the rest got here via search engine; once a week I go through the logs to see what they were searching for. I’ve been doing this for, yes, more than a decade. Draw your own conclusions.

If you live in the United States, there’s at least a measurable chance you got the day off today. I didn’t. But I’m not complaining. (Much.) And the usual Monday-morning routine contains the usual trip through the search strings, looking for things that, as they say out here on the Plains, “just don’t look right.”

We didn’t invent this particular feature — at least, I don’t think we did — but we’ve probably milked it more than anyone else you can name. It’s a simple scheme: find out what people who come to this site are searching for, and try to make fun of them when we can.

general motors developed a car in the 1970s for the u.s. market called the nova. that name was not useful for selling the car in mexico because in spanish it translates to “won’t go.” what kind of geography can help companies avoid these problems when selling internationally?  A link to Snopes would be useful, since no such issue existed with the Nova — or with AMC’s Matador, which means “killer,” and not just of bulls.

theresa may upskirt:  Well, it’s probably more entertaining than one of Jeremy Corbyn.

the primary losers in the quest for upward mobility through sport are the thousands of children who have unrealistic expectations of their potential and misjudge the odds of realizing their dreams:  And the thousands of parents who were hoping they’d stumbled upon a gold mine.

reptiles express:  You’d be surprised how fast that iguana can move.

What happens here is simply this: a lot of people come here, not to see what sort of absurd observations I might be making, but because they’re searching for something. Of course, I know what they’re searching for, and if it’s funny enough or ludicrous enough or simply weird enough, it will show up here on a Monday morning.

Monday morning has come, as it does seemingly every darn week, and that means it’s time for another traipse through the search strings that bring people to this site. Most of them are fairly unremarkable, so the trick here is to find those that aren’t.

If you’re new around here, let us fill you in on what happens in this weekly feature. A substantial percentage of traffic to this site consists of searchers, be they from Google, Yahoo!, Bing, DuckDuckGo, or any of several others. What they may be searching for, we don’t know until we look through the logs; and if we’re lucky, we’ll find something worth passing on. (And yes, I suppose we’re always lucky; we wouldn’t be in the 590th installment if we hadn’t been.)
