On the Really Stupid Things

One of the top searches bringing people to the website this month is, I kid you not, “Oneders of the World.”

What the frell are people trying to find? The Oneders are, as everyone knows, the Erie band that’s the focus of Tom Hanks’ film That Thing You Do!.

If it’s “Wonders of the World” people are looking for, why do a search under that goofy spelling “Oneders”? That does not make sense.

And you know what? “Oneders of the World” turns up seventeen hits to my webpage.

Seventeen. See for yourself.

I’m sorry. This is just so impossibly silly.

What the frell are people looking for? Hello? Anyone?
