All Time Sandy Awards – Questions!

It figures! The Joker was making all these ridiculous searches!

As part of The Nest’s 10th anniversary celebration, we’re dedicating the next eleven Tuesdays to one of my very favorite features to write for this blog, The Sandy Awards!  I presented these awards at the end of every year since 2012 for the best, funniest and most fucked up search terms to get caught up in the filter WordPress maintains in my stats page.  Unfortunately, as search engines began encrypting more and more of the terms that led people to my blog, it was inevitable that a point would finally be reached where I had hardly any material at all to work with… and that moment came midway through 2020.

Since I had nothing to do a 2021 Sandy Awards show with, I borrowed an idea I’d already planned to do anyway when this blog turned ten, and that’s an all-time Sandys list!  I divvied all of the previous Sandy entries into my nine classic categories (plus a miscellaneous for terms that didn’t fit anywhere), and will present one category each week until the final post on March 22nd announcing each category’s winner, as well as THE best search term EVER on my blog.  You won’t want to miss that!

Better put on your best tuxedo T-shirt and stilettos.

Every bolded term you see in this series is an actual set of search terms that was typed in by someone somewhere in the world during the last ten years, and that search led them to The Nest!

And now on to Part One of my 10th anniversary Sandy Awards!  As always, I’ll start with the category that led off every Sandy Awards show since its inception…

The Nest has apparently answered a lot of your internet questions over the past ten years!  I don’t quite know how, but here’s some of the things we’re apparently experts on….

  1. ummm.. we don’t want to know the answer to the question we all want to know? hahaha really?

  2. With questions like that, we must be doomed as a species. 🤯

  3. Bifurcated hmmm? Another thing I’ll never be able to erase from my mind’s trivia dump…

  4. OK – I surrender – now I want to go check my stats on WordPress for SEARCH TERMS used…..I’ll let you know if I find anything that’s anywhere near as screwy as yours are!


    • Good luck. You’ll have to go way back and check the archives, because even I’ve only had a few trickle in over the past six months or so. There’s a way to bring up your all time list, and I’ll bet it reveals some hilarity!

    All these are so funny! The evil rice/mice a roni got me giggling! haha 🙂

  6. Kismet says:

    In Arizona, we are squirrel free. No trees, just cactus with thorns. Paradise or since Las Vegas is close, pair of dice.

  7. OMG! Mice a Roni? 😀 And those evil red squirrels … Yikes!

  8. Trisha says:

    These always crack me up! “Are red squirrels evil?” Lol What would make anyone think that?

  9. These are awesome. Just goes to show that the human brain is a confusing place. I don’t get the crazy stuff anymore. My algorithm are humorless and just plain f___ed up these days. Anyway, this was fun. More fun please. God knows we all need a steady diet of squirrel humor.

    • I wish I got ANY stuff anymore, but Google, being the champion of privacy (LOL), doesn’t want us bloggers to know what people are searching. I can only imagine some of the great humor I’d have to work with if this were still the pre-encryption days…

    I want to search for “does that cereal have real field mice in it” but it would only bring me back here…
