Something is "Hinkey"

Anyone watch NCIS on TV? Abby, the forensics specialist/computer specialist has a line when something is array. She always says, "There's something hinkey going on". Translation something is strange or unusual about the circumstances.

Of my last 60 visitors a full 13/60 have googled "zebras" or something to do with zebras. That is a full 21% of the last 60 people who ended up on my blog...and they are different people, or at least visiting from different computers in different countries.

Something is "hinkey about that...anyone care to shed some light on why zebras on my blog are suddenly so popular?

Just curious.

There is something odd going on, I have had 22 visitors today who found me through a google search for "Smarties" - i am number two on the google image search for smarties for some reason!!! The googlebots are revolting it seems?

I get lots of hits from "Dark Side Cookies" - google is indeed bizarre at times...

Your art work, remember the three paintings with zebra pattern?

Could they be searching for something like Aqua Zebras blog?

Aqua Zebra (I think) is a Myspace layout, like a blog template.

so if you search aqua zebras blog
it gives your blog a few entries down..."I took the zebras drinking water, cropped the picture so it"...

They don't call me Sherlock for nothing...or at all!

PS You do realise you'll get twice as many hits using that search criteria now?

I agree with Dr Shock. I immediately thought of the zebra paintings. So, the text on your site about zebras is registering when someone googles that term.

Ha, ha..Smarties? You could be found by worse search terms...and "Dark side cookies...too funny. I thought of the paintings too

...I just found it strange that SUDDENLY so many searches were happening...just a silly post really. (although D. Shock it is entirely possible for me to forget things like that..hee,hee...sort of;>)

I just got you by googling the word hinkey. I can't find it in any proper dictionary.
