Everything Under The Sun, Including Squirrels Having…

Jedi Squirrels

(This is one of my favorite posts from just over a year ago. I’m reposting it because, well, I really like it.)

So, I’m sitting in front of my computer wondering what to blog about, and it occurs to me that I have nothing new to say.


And that’s when it hits me—the perfect idea for a blog. (Okay…not perfect, but at least an idea!)

Pirate Squirrel

It all goes back to a few summers ago when I was sitting outside the coffee shop with my coffee shop friends. It was beautiful summer day, and our dogs were out there with us too. Much as summer days go, we were all sipping our coffee and discussing things like world peace, whether milk was cheaper at Jewel or Walgreens this week and how to make the perfect peach pie.

Squirrel Drinking Coffee

Somewhere between peace and peach pie, and pausing to give our dogs a few more treats, it occurred to one of us that a person could probably Google just about anything and, sure enough, find something about it on the Internet.

I pause here to warn you: it was sunny day, we were all well into our second or third cup of coffee, and the subject we came up with to test this little theory of ours on wasn’t exactly PG. However, in the spirit of truth in journalism, I continue.

One my coffee buddies, who shall go unnamed (Larry), has a reputation as an avid animal lover and protector of all things fluffy; in particular, squirrels. Which is the only excuse I can think of to justify the subject we chose: Squirrels having sex. Actually, I’m pretty sure it went something like this:

“Yep, I bet someone’s even put up a website about squirrels having sex!”

So, we googled it and—OMG! —there were over 1,000,000 results, not to mention videos!

No, I didn’t watch any of them!

Well…maybe one.

My point is, I no longer need to ponder the meaning of existence—I can simply Google it. Don’t believe me? Look at these results:

Here’s my challenge to you: Think of the most unlikely topic you can imagine – something so crazy you can’t even imagine another human being thinking about it—and Google it. If you’re brave enough, let me know what you find out.

    OK, so we were talking about this at work so I thought I’d Google it….the question is: What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake? I got 391,000 hits!

    Oh, and the answer? Read this: A muffin is any quickbread (mixed by muffin mixing method & does NOT contain yeast) that is in the shape of a cupcake. A cupcake is any cake batter mixed with the straight method or creaming method made into the shape of a cup.

    I will have to make sure that I stay out of the conversations that go on outside of my coffee shop. I thought you were trained on avoiding sexual harassment in the workplace?

      Yes, you would be shocked by the conversations that take place nearly every day on your turf. Why, we’ve saved the entire world several times over!

    I love squirrels, we raised a few from rat stage ( no hair ). Anyway, great post; started with nothing in mind then ran with the idea of squirrels and ….. ok, sex, which lead to Google. The question that popped in my mind as I was reading your blog was are there still coffee shops that serve free refills on coffee, other than lets say Waffle House? Three cups of coffee, conversation with friends…sounds fun. Maybe I will Google “free coffee refills”.
