The Magic Fruit Opera

Squeeze thought of this pun, actually
I was looking at some of the search terms Alexa says people use to wander over here and some of them were quite amusing:

1. Retro song you can call me crazy: You can call me crazy but I have no idea what this one is about. I do write about retro songs sometimes, though. That's true.

Elsie and Lady Borden Life Oct 24 1949
Elsie does retro karaoke, ca 1949
2. Magic fruit opera: My favorite search term. It just has a fun ring to it, doesn't it? I envision a really big mango belting out Cosi fan tutti-frutti (pun is not original, I wish it was). Maybe The Magic Flute is the idea here? But I have never mentioned any operas. I try not to, if I can help it. Borden's Magic Fruit Cake is closer to the mark, I think. And perhaps Elsie the Cow (the old 50s Borden's mascot, whose cartoon ads I keep meaning to write about) would sing about Magic Fruit Cake. Yes, yes she would.

3. ring-ding blogspot: Never wrote about Ring Dings either. Until now!  Not to be confused with the Hostess Ding Dong, a similarly round chocolate cake filled with - white, um, filling. Or it might refer to this post.

4. Giant plastic dixie cups: Oh, this is about The Dixie Cup Horror post, I guess. Only the cups were very small. They do loom large in the ad, though.

5. Pelicon [sic] costume: I think this one has to do with the Maidenform ad. But it made me think of Halloween, too. Is there such a thing as a pelican costume? Wait a sec, let me go look. Oh my stars, there is. Um, OK. But does the pelican dream he was wearing a Maidenform? (Let's hope not.)

6. Fishflakes cocain [sic] making: No idea about this, because I haven't written about fishflakes. Or cocaine. Or how to make cocaine out of fishflakes.

7. Eat plain frosting: How plain is this frosting that we're going to eat? Plain as in vanilla, or plain as in there is no cake attached to it? Either way, this is a much better idea than fishflakes cocaine.

I crack up when I see how they got to my site too. I can't print any of the them however.

Mmmm, plain frosting, right out of the tub after it's been in the fridge. Gotta go fall into a diabetic coma now, LOL.

Tori Lennox said...

I've had some really bizarre search terms on my blog too. Makes me kind of worry about people. LOL!

Like those illustrations .

Kath Lockett said...

A recent link to my blog was 'Geriatric porn for free'
What the....?

Lidian said...

Jen - I never knew how much fun Alexa was!

thedickdujour - And frosting out of a tube is even easier to ingest while lying down!

Tori - Yeah, it does make you wonder...

Haddock - Why thank you :)

Kath - What the...indeed!

Check out the calves on Elsie! (Get it? Calf? Calves? No? Oh nevermind.) - G

Bill said...

I'm 100% with Georgina. I noticed Elsie's shapely calves right off, too.

Now my head is all a-whirl. Who is this mysterious Alexa? How does she divine these search patterns? Some of them certainly are bizarre.

You get bonus points on this post for the obscure Squeeze reference - I loved that album.

Ditto what Geogina and Bill wrote. Shapely.

Don't feel bad, one of the more popular ways people get to Small & Big? "underarm licking." And it's not even central to the story: Ponderous Chapped Lips.
