People Search For the Darndest Things

Every so often I go through our search engine records to see if there are things people are searching for that:

  • we should carry
  • we carry but aren't described well
  • are regularly misspelled and in need of search engine help
  • are really weird

Today I'm going to share some of the weird items with you.

  • cossack – We do carry cassocks but Russians are in short supply.
  • cilice – I assume that people are still stuck on the Dan Brown books. No, we don't sell these but if you aren't polite to our customer service staff, I do keep the albino monk on retainer.
  • motorcycle – We do carry St. Columbanus medals. He is the patron of motorcyclists in spite of living long before the combustion engine was invented. He did fight a bear once which at least gives him the toughness creds to protect your hog.
  • surplus – We do have some items on clearance but he was probably looking for a surplice.
  • puerto rico – Maybe try Mapquest?
  • how to wolf-proof your kids – I'm going to leave this to Saint Francis and try not to think too hard about the reasons for such a search.

Can I borrow your albino monk? I think he might be able scare some of my third grade religious ed students into behaving in class.

Hey Ian,

"How to Wolf Proof Your Kids" by Gary Michuta is a book on keeping your kids Catholic. So not such an odd search.

Searching for cossacks is pretty funny, though. (Maybe try Russia?) ;-)

Someone on Facebook pointed that out. We currently carry "Why Catholic Bibles are Bigger" by the same author.
