Letting the Internet down. Repeatedly.

Two searches that have led to my blog within the past 24 hours:

booger slime cake

wife swaping site
Not "swapping," mind you. "Swaping." Fortunately for our searcher, Google did in fact direct (I'm guessing) him to a post of mine that mentions wife swapping. Unfortunately for (presumably) him, it was a post, not unlike this one, about people finding my blog by searching on the phrase "wife swapping." The post itself did not, in fact, have anything to do with wife swapping at all.

In an additionally unfortunate turn of events for (we figure) him, (let's just say) he never even made it to the almost two-year-old post that originally mentioned a wife swapping party. Although even then it only raised the issue in the context of a short story I was reading at the time.

Well, I guess you could say that the post does kind of discuss wife swapping beyond the scope of the short story. In a way.

But one can still very safely assume that it's not what our Googlers were actually seeking.

Of course, this, today's entry, amounts to yet another layer of frustration for those seeking posts that actually deal with the topic of wife swapping, rather than meta meta analyses of Google results.

Sorry (still assuming) guys. Try, try again.

I think it's clearly your duty to post some wife swapping info now. Maybe you could do a guide to key parties or something.

Your Google search results are much more interesting than mine. Maybe I need to talk more about boogers.

Actually, I'd be interested in your thoughts on wife swaping, while we're on the subject.

Sweep \Sweep\, n.

(Definitions 1-11 irrelevant)

12. A long pole, or piece of timber, moved on a horizontal fulcrum fixed to a tall post and used to raise and lower a bucket in a well for drawing water. [Variously written swape, sweep, swepe, and swipe.]

In light of the above, I would have to view wife swaping with something of a skeptical eye.

On the other hand, any activity among adults that is completely consensual by all involved or affected is A-OK in my book.

Is it just me, or is the term "wife swapping" really offensive? Shouldn't it be "spouse swapping" or better yet, "partner swapping"?

I'd have to agree with you there. It's part of what make me so comfortable assuming that our Googlers are men!
