I take pride in the strange search terms that are often used to find my blog. I want to stencil them on a wall or stitch them into a throw pillow, and then use them as physical proof that I am, in fact, strange. Maybe I don’t need to prove that. It’s kind of a strange impulse to feel the need to prove one’s strangeness–in the same way that some people go to extreme lengths to prove their manhood by buying big fancy cars or shooting big fancy guns.
Anyway, someone typed “how money is a red cardinal bird worth”, and ended up here. First of all, I like the omission of the word “much”. And I also like that someone is trying to sell a “red cardinal bird”–so specific! Had they just said “cardinal”, then someone may have thought they were trying to sell the female variety which is more of a brownish color, OR someone may have thought they were thinking of auctioning off a senior ecclesiastical official in the Catholic Church. Personally, I think birds are way more attuned to God than oh, say, Pietro Bembo over here. And therefore, an all-around better investment.
Cardinals aside, the only other noteworthy search terms of late have been “vagina” (still) and “Gary Busey”. I guess I also take pride in being inane.
