It's just that easy

So, I was doing some net surfing lately and saw this ad at the top of my screen:



That's kinda creepy. I don't even live in Hilliard (that's where my ISP is routed or something like that). But "tons," you say? Hmmmm....

It's weird how those things are routed. My company's server routes through the home office in Zuerich, so when anybody at work goes to google.com, it's the Swiss version. That's great. Ninety percent of the employees have no idea what the German language is, let alone understand it. But I enjoy Google Schweiz.

I noticed that. When I first saw that someone from Switzerland was constantly on my blog, I thought "who the hell is that?" Then I realized it was you from checking the time comments were made.

Until a couple of weeks ago, it always said I was routed from Columbus. Now it's Hilliard. Weird.

I didn't tell you that I commute to Switzerland daily? It's all thanks to the new metric 100 hour day.

I frequently get similar posts from Haslett, MI, about 2 miles away. Who knew there were so many horny women so nearby?

Kate said...

I've never seen that ad until now. The whole "Get Laid! Get Laid!" spalshed across the banner cracks me up. What kind of town are you living in anyways? ;)

spydrz - Good thing you traded in your SUV.

dubin - Apparently, they're where you least expect them.

kate - I guess one in which there are TONS OF SEX PARTNERS!

The Dubin said...

When they say "tons" of sex partners, does that have anything to do with your description of Midwesterners as a "large but friendly" people? Could it mean they are referring specifically to, say, 2 or 3 horny women whose combined weights equal 2,000 pounds or more?

Haslett isn't exactly known for being a cosmopolitan metropolis, teeming with California-style vegetarian bistros. And apparently McDonald's offers a Johnsonville brat value meal. You do the math.

spydrz said...

Does the Johnsonville brat meal come with chili cheese fries?

Kate The Great said...

Can't believe I am on the same thought pattern as The Dubin. But yes, that's exactly what I was wondering. It could be an experience that would give Getting Lost In Love a whole new meaning.

Just watch out for the crumbs in the folds.

Oh, I am so gross sometimes.

Micah said...

Funny you should say that, because I also made that interpretation. Yep, the Midwest isn't all that svelte, but I stand by my assessment from when my eyes were first opened: given it's huge co-ed population, C-Bus is the best kept cutie secret in the country. Just don't go to the State Fair.

KtG - [Cleveland*]Oh, that's nasty.[/Cleveland]

*character from "Family Guy," not the city.

The Dubin said...

Oh, Quagmire. You're what the Spaniards call El Terrible.

Micah said...

I tell ya, next to the Greased Up Naked Deaf Guy, I think Cleveland is my favorite FG character.

My favorite quote: when Peter sits down to eat at Cleveland's deli, he asks, "Would you like a menu or do you want your usual 'Urverything?'"

#2: "Balloons tied to a mailbox is the international symbol for PARTY OVER HERE."

The Dubin said...

I'm not even sure who my favorite character is. I usually go with the most ridiculous...so probably Peter or Quagmire.

"Hello? 911? Yeah....It's Quagmire...yeah...it's in a window this time."

The guy who voices Cleveland is from Richmond.
