A different look at Google search terms

You know what they say about Google Search: if you can't find it on the first page, don't bother - it doesn't exist!
I have posted before about what Google terms people use to get to this little old blog. It's still funny to me that people can type in "Brandi Passante smoking cigarettes" or "throwing money into the air" and end up here. I always wonder what people were looking for when they type in those Google searches. (and clearly this is not where they wanted to end up.) Then I heard that there was some information that was left out of the Casey Anthony trial about her Google searches. The news story said that she had Googled suffocation techniques and that it was spelled incorrectly on her browser's history. That got me thinking, what if I was brought up on trial, what would they think about my recent Google searches...
These are off my phone. Which meant I couldn't wait to find out the answer to my question.

1. What does SMH mean?
Don't make fun all you Internet savvy peeps. I didn't know it meant Shaking My Head.
2. What does FTW stand for?
I have heard two very different things: For the Win and F*** the World. Google did  not help me solve this problem.
3. "Sloppy Swish"
This is a recent SNL skit. My husband told me to look up "sloppy swish" and I had no idea what it was. I was really afraid of what was going to pop up. It was so funny. We have watched it a billion times since.

4. "Lonely Island"
They were mentioned in an article about Sloppy Swish, and then I had to figure out who they were. This is the group that helped come up with the holiday classic, "Dick in a Box."
5. How do you get gall stones?
Basically, they are a build up of cholesterol that can't get through the ducts in the gall bladder.

6. Elf IMDB
I wanted to double check that Zooey was in Elf. I thought so, but I wanted to be sure before I said something.

7. What does the uvula do?
This was a student question. Actually his question was "what does that punch bag thing in your throat do?" I knew it was called the uvula, and now I know that it helps make "guttural sounds" and helps to prevent food from entering the nasal passage.

8. Is Mystery Diners Scripted?
Have you wasted your time watching this stupid show? There is NO way it is real.

What would your Google searches say about you?

HAHA...I love your Google searches.

And for the record, I can never seem to remember what SMH means either. I had to Google it at least 5 times before I could remember PART of the time. It still trips me up from time to time...

Helene said...

hahaha this is SOOO true. i love this. and i didn't know what smh meant either. whoops.

Alison said...

Haha, this is great. Google searches are so funny sometimes. I can't remember half of the internet acronyms that are around.

Michelle said...

Hahaha!! I've been so paranoid about my google searches since Casey Anthony's trial, too! So paranoid. And don't worry, I definitely had to google SMH & FTW too. I could not figure it out.

I love Lonely Island. LOVE.

I was just showing my hubs the funny searches that led people to my blog! I wish we knew more details about the searches! Oh well, they are at least good for a laugh!

I've heard what SMH means before but usually every time I see it I have to think for a bit before I remember what it means. It's a weird phrase. I don't really like internet abbreviations anyways!
I always think the google searches that find my blog are either hilarious or somewhat scary. "Husband bit me" is one that led to my blog, I'm not sure why...

Ashlyn said...

Ha! Your google searches are too funny! I want to go look at mine now

I always thought smh was a sound! Good thing I've been using it in context anyway!
