Internet "Wisdom" [Jun. 3rd, 2010|09:35 pm]
If you go to http://www.google.com/ ...

Type in "rats are" and see what autocomplete options come up. There's predictable "rats are cute", "rats are dangerous", and "rats are smart."

There's also "rats are people too"! Dunno who besides me is googling that one...

Type in "squirrels are" and autocomplete options include "squirrels are the devil's oven mitts". O.O

I'm not sure what to make of this. I just report the wisdom of teh Internets. :P

"a bear is" famously autocompletes to "a bear is a man who made a choice"

Some of my favorites:

"dogs are" -> dogs are from Neptune
"cats are" -> cats are ductile and malleable
"ferrets are" -> ferrets are attracted to gas lines
"fish are" -> fish are friends not food (I know where THAT comes from.)
"birds are" -> birds are secretly composers
"iguanas are" -> iguanas are falling out of trees
"horses are" -> horses are god's apology for man
"frogs are" -> frogs are off their diet

Iguanas falling out of trees is a phenomenon during cold snaps in Florida, if memory serves. (I could Google it and check but that seems so inappropriate somehow...)

I'm not sure "ductile and malleable" really describes cats. I think they're actually a non-Newtonian fluid. When disturbed they appear solid, but leave them alone in, say, a box and they'll assume the shape of their container.

For a while, if you typed in "i like", one of the first suggestions was "i like to tape my thumbs to my hands to see what it would be like to be a dinosaur."

Oh yeah, and my personal favorite, just because it's a Michigan reference from my youth:
"50 watts" -> 50 watts per channel babycakes
