Since I am all about educating my readers I thought I would share my most recent google posts that are stored on my phone. Get excited.
Google Search #1: Avant Garde
Anyone else watch Project Runway? Well, I try to pretend I am so fashion forward and like I totally know what it means when they do an “avant garde” competition. Truthfully, I have no freaking clue what avant garde is. (Please tell me I am not the only one.)
Oh, okay. So that explains this:
Definitely pushing the boundaries.
Google Search #2: Don’t Tase Me, Bro
Yes. I was going around the house telling Tommy, “Don’t Tase Me, Bro.” Funny thing is, I have no idea why this saying popped into my head. Then it led to a discussion about what year this was. I was convinced it was 2008; Tommy - 2007. Tommy won.
Google Search #3: Giant Crocodile
My mom emailed me to Google “giant crocodile.” I did. It is giant.
It was captured alive in the Philippines and is 21 feet long and weighs 2,370 pounds.
Google Search #4: Chumlee
Tommy and I love Pawn Stars (wow, I watch a lot of tv) and as we were watching the other day I started thinking about whether “Chumlee” was really Chumlee’s first name.
Well, all you Pawn Stars fans, it isn’t. His first name is really Austin and he got his nickname when friends in elementary school took the name from cartoon character Tennessee Tuxedo’s sidekick, a walrus named Chumley.
Google Search #5: Awesomesauce
I have seen this word used around the web a lot lately. No clue what it really means and how it became a part of the every day vernacular.
For those of you who have not encountered “awesomesauce” here is how it would be used in a sentence: “I have a full year of paid vacation.” Response: “Awesomesauce.”
According to Urban Dictionary: The origin of 'awesome sauce' is probably from Strong Bad, although in that case he refers to a cleaning product with the trade name of Awesome Sauce. 'Awesome sauce' has been adapted for use both as an exclamation or reserved sign of approval.
Which then led me to Google Search #6: What is Strong Bad?
Please tell me you learned something new today!
