How this works: You go to your favorite search engine and type in a search string. At some point, they’ll stop sending you results, but inasmuch as there are over seven million words on this site, there’s a good chance you’d see something here that might be pertinent. We normally don’t pay attention, though, unless you asked for something that for some reason strikes us as a few degrees off plumb, and if you did, you’ll eventually see it here.

The first of these collections from 2018 is actually pretty much like the last few hundred from the last decade. If you somehow managed to miss out, this is the deal: we go through the logs looking for search strings from Actual Web Surfers, and publish the ones that seem, well, strange. (No, if you were responsible for these, we don’t go track you down. Usually.)

You know, this just might work

Patrick adds a new recurring feature — at least, I hope it recurs — to The Lost Ogle:

30% of The Lost Ogle’s site traffic still comes directly from search engines. The rest comes from either direct traffic or social media. Depending on what’s going on each month, the terms are all over the map. The top search engine results are usually “The Lost Ogle,” “Lost Ogle” and “Emily Sutton Married.” We also get some weird, odd and semi-strange ones. To steal an idea from the pages of Dustbury — the O.G. of the Oklahoma Blogosphere — we’re going to highlight some of those (that we feel comfortable publishing) at the end of each month.

Of course, I think this is a swell idea — if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have done it 617 times already — and TLO gets enough traffic to virtually guarantee some seriously wacky stuff in any given month. The first month’s collection was satisfyingly weird.

And this does explain why several people at 42nd and Treadmill were addressing me as “Mr. O.G.” on Friday.
