Sacrificial Chipmunks

Inspired by Running Jamie's post, I looked (for the very first time) at the stats that Blogger makes available to me about the traffic sources and whatnot here at my good ol' Mountain.  I was surprised to know I could  see which search engines were sending folks here based on which search terms (it appears I'm a big hit in Bulgaria) (that's not true, but it would be funny if it were).  Luckily, I stumbled upon it on the very day that someone had found my blog by googling "sacrificial chipmunk."
Now, it's odd enough that I have actually used the term sacrificial chipmunk in a post -- I'll give you that.  But that someone is actively seeking a sacrificial chipmunk? I think that's even weirder (and I am a highly qualified judge of weird). 

So this is my new game:  to place in [most of] my posts a term or phrase or made-up-word, then monitor my statistics for weirdos who google them.  I can only assume that I will over think the possibilities and then no one will search for them...but on the other hand, it will be good to have a place to put some of the stupid things I say on any given day.

Maniacal boots.

And yes, suggestions are welcomed.

There's an XKCD comic about this very thing. http://xkcd.com/369/

And yes, I did spend 15 minutes looking for this.

After this comic was posted, well... search for it and see how many hits you get.

haha

I have a pair of boots like that.

I just had someone search "how to dress an athletic man" and land on my blog. If that isn't a self-esteem booster, I don't know what is.

I look forward to hearing more about the results of this game. :)
