It’s once again time to share more wild and wacky blog search phrases that have landed here at our blog, Poor Richard’s Almanac, over our virtual transom. If this keeps up, we’re going to have to institute the PRA version of the Darwin Awards. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! As always, original search phrase in bold, our response following:

old ben’s almanac: Let’s try not to get personal, please.

black poor richard: We’ve gotten this query a number of times in the past. Can anyone shed any light on it?

shamelessly plugging along: Speak for yourself, unless you happen to be a Nobel or MacArthur Fellowship nominator. In which case, our friend Ben would be happy to plug along as shamelessly as you like.

tomato benjamin franklin: Now here’s an exciting development! If anyone knows of a tomato named for our hero and blog mentor, the great Dr. Franklin, please let us know!

breaking news on lovers: We suspect there hasn’t been too much breaking news on this topic since the days of Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, and Antony and Cleopatra. Sorry.

smoking elephant ear plants: We’d rather grow them as ornamentals or eat them in patra roulades, ourselves. But do let us know what you think.

another name of extravegance: We enthusiastically recommend the dictionary. But we urge you to try Spell-Check first.

has dr oz had tattoos removed? Poor Dr. Oz. People arrive at our blog all the time trying to find out how old he is and/or whether he’s had plastic surgery. And now it’s tattoos. We have no idea, but let’s start a rumor and say that a little bird told us he had a tattoo removed from his ankle that said “I hate Dr. Phil” shortly before becoming a regular on “Oprah.”

amish almanac: Hmmm. We don’t know of a specifically Amish almanac, but you might check the Amish newspaper, The Budget, and see if it’s advertising one.

someone put red flags on our front lawn: Hey, it wasn’t us.

squirrel silence: Really? Our squirrels are notable for making a racket. And Silence Dogood says, if that remark happens to be personal, “I resent that!”

chocolate pi freak: We hope you enjoy every piece to the 3.14159265…

Ha! I love it when you do these posts. Though, where are the really gaudy ones?

Mercifully, we don’t tend to get many of those. But you never know!
