Never let it be said that I don't take requests. Case in point: One of my fellow bloggers asked that I share with the world the various search terms -- culled via the ever handy Google Analytics -- that bring people to this blog. The assumption behind this, I think, was that the search terms used by my potential readers would somehow be more perverse and nasty than those associated with the sites of some of my peers. I have no idea where this assumption might have come from.
Okay, yes I do. If you've ever written the words "rape", "midget", the term "face pissing", or the name "Amrish Puri" on your blog -- to which I respond "guilty", "guilty", "guilty" and "oh, hell yes" -- doing a survey of your search terms can be a pretty dispiriting exercise. It's not all bad news, though. Rather than being off-puttingly pervy, some of them are merely puzzling, often amusing, and occasionally rich with pathos. Of course, there's also an awful lot of the off-puttingly pervy stuff, too.
So, yes, I am going to share. But it occurred to me that the bite-sized format of the search term was ideal for Twitter. So, rather than just posting a list of my favorites, I'll be tweeting them at odd intervals -- with original grammar and spelling held sacrosanct, of course -- for twenty-four hours starting at 5 pm today (Sunday). I think that this will provide all of you who are in the know with a better opportunity to really appreciate these isolated explosions of Tourettes-like search speak in all of their beautiful randomness. Everyone else will just think I'm drunk as fuck.
