Search term hilarity.

While I meet my students and try to mitigate freak-outs about enrollments, I offer for your consideration some of the search strings that brought people to this blog during the month of January:

  • sloth jokes
  • 3 toed sloth cocktails
  • pandemic flu rationing
  • shark on beach eating seals
  • the cheating is the bad way
  • people that don't approve of the evolution
  • all academic social implications of beleiving in Santa Claus
  • actual size of the solstice
  • difference between chemistry physics
  • how to get a whiteboar
  • i can't believe I finished my dissertation
  • marriage name change philosophy
  • honorific for my pharmacist
  • are there polar molecules in one a day women
  • what are some impediments to our thinking today
  • juggling ethics

Please use the comments to provide your own commentary or jokes about items on the list.

From time to time I have a look at the search strings that have brought readers to this blog. Looking at some of the recent queries, I can't help but wonder what kind of blog this would be if these described my main focus: sarcastic jokes i do not get it is it a gender thing percentage of…
I've been having this 3:30 am (EST) insomnia for about the last two months, so I often pull the laptop up and survey the blogosphere in the still of the night. A simple look at the Last 24 Hours at ScienceBlogs and elsewhere in the blogosphere tells me that some knuckleheads in the mainstream…
I have a couple of substantive posts percolating, but I need to scrape some ice first. (Plus, you know, attend to some grading and administrative tasks.) In the meantime, I wanted to share a sampling of some of the search queries that have brought people to this blog: "originally designed with…
Radiolab is a show about science that briliantly uses radio's greatest strength--sound--to bring stories to life in ways we print goons can only dream about. I wrote a story about how animals sleep.

actual size of the solstice

About thirty megasloths per nanoethic, plus or minus a few 3-toed jugglers eating flu cocktails.

So, is a 3-toed sloth cocktail a drink made for 3-toed sloths, or by them? If the former, it's my understanding that it would need to be made from Cecropia leaves, if the sloths want to digest it; if the latter, then I suspect that it will be watery and warm, as the ice will surely melt in the shaker before the drink gets poured.

You get a whiteboar by combining one part blackboar with ten parts bleach...

"what are some impediments to our thinking today?" Might I suggest that one impediment is the tendency to randomly feeding vague questions into Google in the hopes of falling bass-ackwards into a good answer.

The difference between chemistry and physics is whether you measure the solstice in moles or kilograms.

I wonder if by posting the search terms you effect future search terms that find your blog significantly?

Please be so kind as to detail the specific rate at which people visit this page when searching for the next "search term hilarity" episode since this will certainly result in very unusual findings.

Nick stole my boar joke.
I really want to say something witty about an horrific pharmacist but I am too tired and can't do it.

Honorific for my pharmacist: Either sir or madam, depending on gender.

Yes, there are polar molecules in one a day women. There are also polar molecules in other kinds of women, and in men for that matter.

What are some impediments to our thinking today? Well, if we've just finished our dissertation, and can't believe it....

I must have missed the thread on juggling ethics. I would have thought that if you catch as many balls as you throw in the air, you've met your ethical requirements. Now, the guys that juggle chainsaws probably have stricter guidelines...

what are some impediments to our thinking today

and

i can't believe I finished my dissertation

clearly, these two are related...
