A Not-So-Serious Look At the Questions The World Is Asking

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so Ashleyleia, this is all your doing. Her post made me laugh so hard, and I’m avoiding real work, so I’m stealing her idea.

Google puts out its analytics every year and includes the most frequently asked questions by different countries, so I thought it would be fun to take a handful of them and provide answers. These are just a sampling from the many questions asked in many questions. Obviously, people view my site from around the world, so I don’t want to leave any of them out…

  1. Brazil is up to some crazy stuff. I was travelling there with my mom about 15 years ago and had gotten a room at what seemed like a standard guest house. But it turned out that the room was tricked out for travellers wanting a little something-something. There was a little trapdoor thing so you could get your room service without having to open the door. There were strategically placed mirrors around the bed, and there were porn channels on the tv. Fun times!

    1. When I was like 13, I went to Typhoon Lagoon, which was the Disney water park in Florida, with my family. There were a lot of Brazilian people there and while thongs weren’t popular in culture yet, every female between 5 and 75 would take their bathing suit bottom and cram it up their butt. I’m just now realizing that seeing all that elderly ass may be why I’m not a butt man.
