I forget exactly how I found Autocomplete Me, but it showcases, via Google’s autocomplete search suggestions, some strange keywords and terms that apparently are actually Googled quite often. Already some of the entries have made me laugh uncontrollably out loud, and I have, on occasion, entered the search query myself to see if these are real. (Some are, some aren’t.)
Plus, the accompanying captions are hilarious.
A few days ago I checked out some concertos from the library to sight-read for fun.
Just now I was in my room and my mom was downstairs and she hollered, “Sharon, where are the concertos?”
I heard that as “Sharon, where are the pet turtles?”
Me: Pet turtles??
Me: PET TURTLES??
Mom: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CONCERTOS?
Me: WHAT PET TURTLES??? [seriously alarmed]
My ear is excellent at detecting pitch…just not normal human speech.
