G - 'God or Google' It

'God or Google' features questions I would have probably only wondered about long ago- maybe asked God or the universe and awaited a heavenly sign.  But since God and the Universe are often busy with their own agendas, I find myself going to the next best thing:  Google

Previous CQG questions for ‘God or Google’:

Question for God or Google  - why do we pee a little bit after doing our ‘business’?  It’s like the grand finale that says ‘yeah, you can probably get off the john now’.  Does it happen for boys too?  And if so, how do they manage that?

Question for God or Google:  when did the word 'Epic' become a popular stand in for 'awesome' 'rad' or 'the best'??  I first noticed it while watching 'The Vampire Diaries'.  They said 'it was epic' and my first thoughts were 'you mean, like the odysee?'  

Question for God or Google:  Why do we pronounce ‘balogna’ like ‘baloni’?

Question for God or Google:  Why does the deoterant always crumble into chunks when you get to the end?  Such a waste of a good centimeter and a half of product...

Question for God or Google:  Why is it frickin’ impossible to remove pen from baby doll face?  You’d think they’d have invented something that works by now…

Question for God or Google:  Why do the french stick eachother with fish on April Fools Day?

Can you guys think of any more random ‘God or Google’ questions? Or better yet- do you have the answers to any of the questions that preoccupy my creepy mind?

So cute, Katie. Made me smile!

Cheree said...

What did we ever do before Google? I love it. If I'm ever without an answer I just Google it.

Hilarious questions, none of which I have an answer. Here's one of my own: Why do the cashiers change shifts and need to count their drawers right after the customer in front of me pays?

Bon weekend!

Kate said...

Ha ha ha - good questions!!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

These are brilliant questions.

Fortunately my sons aren't like my 'a' of a brother who decided to draw on my favorite dolls face with pen. Thank God.

Epic hasn't made it into my house yet. My sons are still enjoying their new found swearing skills to worry about something so mundane as using 'epic'. :P

Gina said...

YES- why don't they make the nailpolish brushes longer, so you can actually use the nailpolish at the bottom of the bottle? Same for soap- why does the sucky-tube not reach the last quarter inch of soap?

Have you tried alcohol on the baby doll faces? It's been a while since I colored my own dolls, but alcohol works for so many other things!

Jessica Bell said...

haha! I'm having deja vu. Did you do this again some time? Either way, just as entertaining the second time around! :o)

Elena Solodow said...

Awesome! I sadly don't know any of those answers...

April said...

Love it! I think I know the "epic" question. The first time I noticed it was on that show...How I Met Your Mother.

Old Kitty said...

Why DO the french stick each other with fish on April fool's?!?!?!?!

LOL!!

Take care
x

Jaydee Morgan said...

If you ever find an answer to getting pen off a doll's face - I'd love to know!

Chippy said...

I hate it when people use the word 'epic' in that way - my brother's ex used to do that all the time. The one that I think is worse is when something is called an 'epic fail'.

Would a jury sympathise with me if I assaulted someone for using it? ;)

Jennifer Hoffine said...

About the pen on baby doll face...I was just wondering about pen on tan purses the other day...you'd think someone could do something!

Tracy said...

Haha. GREAT use of G! Epic is overused - I wish wish wish people would stop using it that way - grrrrr.
Dear God: Why are the lions always sleeping when I go to the zoo? Why are the bears always in their caves? A person pays good money to see your creations, so wake them up!

Ann said...

Great questions. Being the cynic, I believe it is a conspiracy dreamed up by the deodorant people do that just to ensure life doesn't get too easy. Can't you see them tittering away as they put the crumbly stuff into the last inch and congratulating themeselves with a just wait till they get to the last inch of this one!!!

Summer Frey said...

I've been using epic in that way for a long time. Not sure where I heard it, just did. Just like "sketch"--never "sketchY"--just sketch.

L.G.Smith said...

The French poke each other with fish? That sounds so rude.

And I've heard hairspray will take pen marks off of purses. It might work on baby dolls too.

Laura Marcella said...

I wish I had the answer to the last one! I told my mom about that and she thought it was hilarious. We plan on sticking everyone we know with fish next April Fools Day. :)

NiaRaie said...

LOL! These are all questions I've wondered about. Especially the deo, pee, and ink on a babydoll's face. Fun post !

Nicole Zoltack said...

Such great questions! Unfortunately I don't know the answer to any of them.

Marjorie said...

Hahahahaha! I don't know how to answer any of those. I don't know if even google can.

Matthew MacNish said...

It happens for boys too.

My daughter says epic, and when she does, it's epic.

Siv Maria said...

Just love this! Ha ha I may not have the answers, but I have a question for both God and Google...If I can't find myself on Google soes that mean I don't exist?

Indigo said...

You never fail to elicit a smile from me when I visit. (Hugs)Indigo

Stephanie said...

LOL! Great post!!! I will never understand the crumbling deodorant thing. I feel so special when I actually do make it to the end of one and get through without it falling apart as I swipe it on!

Candyland said...

LOL! OMG! If God or Google answers you about the pee thing, let me know!

nick said...

Sorry, I refer all such questions to my urologist, Dr. B.Ladder.

Julie said...

This was hilarious! My question is: why are the people with perpetually bad breath also the people who are dreaded 'close talkers'??
Ew.

Anonymous said...

This are great, I know I have a million but of course can't think of any....ok, so why can you never remember anything when you need it?

Sarah said...

Sometimes, people land on my blog by googling questions like "how do I unlock my alien DNA?". I'm sure they are terribly disappointed. This is hilarious--thanks!

LTM said...

yes... all good questions. Why for me is why this week have I been so dead tired all day until I put the kids to bed. Then I'm like a little owl--big eyes, not sleeping. There must be some meditation or yoga for this... zzzz... ;p <3

Misha said...

lol I loved these questions.

I'm still stuck on the Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets dilemma.

;-)

Tessa Conte said...

LOL

KatieO said...

Thanks for the smile - irreverant and right on the mark ;-)

Steph said...

Cute!!
I think for the 1st question, it's simply a result of the pushing...
As for Epic, think it came from the term Epic Fail... check out failblog.org- it has recently became popular to laugh at failure, and an "Epic" fail is one of the more intense ones... Like any pop culture term, it didn't take long before it was used regularly!

Fa L'Americana said...

Yeah, I'm kind of flummoxed by the "Bologna" thing too.

When you say the city name "Bologna" (which Bologna is named after anyway) we say "Bolonya". So why does it suddenly become "Baloney" for the food?
