Here at Poor Richard’s Almanac, we’ve once again been inundated with wacky blog searches pouring over the virtual transom. Time to clean house and share more of these search engine gems with all of you. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did! As always, original search phrase in bold, our comment following:

einstein’s mathematical pie: Uh, Eggwhite = meringue chocolate squares?!

can i smother myself with a plastic bag: Why not just drive while texting like everyone else?

almanac signs in the foot: Well, as our hero and blog mentor, the great Benjamin Franklin, once said, “Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.” So if you wear stinky sneakers or only change socks every three days, we guess you must be a Pisces.

eek a mouse nobody owns me: Who’d want to own you?!

appeal of poor richard’s almanac: No need to get insulting.

how is mayonnaise good for our health: Are you a Darwin Award contender by any chance?  

poor richard being on time: Another of Ben Franklin’s sayings, “Haste makes waste,” is definitely a favorite with PRA blog contributor Richard Saunders. Keep that in mind before inviting him to your next dinner party.

the fall of ben and jerry: First Adam and Eve, then Rome, now Ben and Jerry. Where will it all end?!

what is poor richard’s almanac about: Whatever we feel like ranting about on any given day. Isn’t it obvious?

how to fix overcooked macaroni: Just cook it an hour longer than recommended.

poor richard’s puzzler: Why didn’t the chicken cross the road after a train leaving at 4:15 p.m. travelled 341 miles at 40 mph while a cyclist was travelling 5 mph in the opposite direction along the hypotenuse of a triangle starting at 1:33 p.m., except for a half-hour stop for pizza?

recipe for poo pets: We hope we’re not on your Christmas list.

can you grow a olive from a olive: No, you need a orange for that.

stinkbug essential oil: At last, the ultimate self-defense weapon! Forget pepper spray. Where can we get a few cans?

That’s it for this batch! But just wait, we know more will be arriving any minute now…

Gosh! Stink Bug Oil. The marketing potential is amazing! I’ll have to explore the ladybug option. MARKETING POTENTIAL! Disturbingly, I could answer at least half of these querys.

Ha! Well, at least you didn’t ask them!
