It’s been over 6 months since I’ve done one of these, so I thought it was about time. Especially since Cupcake Rehab’s second birthday is coming up in September.
The Cupcake Rehab International posts, in case you are unfamiliar, started with my fascination involving who came to visit my site and where they’re from, not to mention how they got here. I was so shocked at how many countries were represented and at times how strange the search terms where that got people here that I made a blog post. The first post was such a big hit that I did 6 more after that, making this post here my 8th Cupcake Rehab International post. If you’d like to catch up on those entries, here they are: parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Whew. That was a lot of linkage.
Best new visitor’s town name: Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico. I love it, and I love the history behind the name. Also a big ‘Ahoj’ to my new visitor from the Czech Republic and ‘Salaam’ to my new visitor from Pakistan. Last time I kicked it off with the UK so I think this time I’ll start with the Good Ol’ U. S. of A. And please keep in mind I try to add every single town but it’s so hard to keep up, so if you don’t see yours and you know you’ve been here, tell me & I will most certainly add it. From the U.S., I’ll do it in alphabetical order (by country, not town- that’d take me 6 years!). If I missed anything or misspelled anything, feel free to correct me. And please, feel free to say hi and tell me where you’re from!

And of course… it wouldn’t be complete without funny search terms! As always, my comments are italicized and I am in no way making fun of my readers, here. I’m laughing at how funny the searches are. Come on, you know you’ve done it too- searched for a barely coherent sentence in a search engine and wound up somewhere totally unrelated. These aren’t all the terms that my stats showed me, but just the funniest/most amusing ones.
- chocolate melted dry easily cupcake coating (no fucking idea)
- how to touch my aunts boobs (Okay seriously? SERIOUSLY?)
- badass cupcake recipe (I got a shitload of those, buddy)
- cats don’t eat cupcakes (they needed to come here to find that out?!)
- hello kitty birthday cake fayetteville, nc (I just want to say I’m sorry that I couldn’t help with any of those things, my friend, and I have no idea why they took you here)
- cupcake firmer frosting (… is this a haiku?)
- how to make rebab cake (uhmmmmm… rhubarb? rehab? what do you think they’re asking about?)
- chocolate chip frosting with oil added (I try to avoid using motor oil in my recipes, except for the few times I had to kill those people… but the chocolate color does mask it well… oh wait, you didn’t mean motor oil… nevermind… *cough* what were we talking about?)
- when the moon hits your eye like an old pizza pie thats aids (yeah uh, that’s possibly creepier than the ‘how to touch my aunt’s boobs’ one…)
- i forgot to put the baking powder in my sugar cookies..what do i do? (here’s an idea: stop baking. forever.)
- thanks for the slumber party (you’re welcome… but when was this party & how did you get into my house?)
- ice cream rehab (hey now… no copyright infringements allowed, ice cream lovers)
- crazy muffins (if only you knew how crazy those muffins can really get)
- why is cupcake crust on top (*blank stare*)
- making of french sandwich (is this a new MTV show? Like, ‘Making The Band’?)
- ozzy osbourne cupcake (sweet! is it made of bats?)
- cupcake pancakes (oh. mah. gah.)
And the NUMBER ONE search term this time around: caramel cupcakes. Thank GOD it’s not ‘chocolate mug cake‘ anymore. At least caramel cupcakes consist of valid culinary recipes and don’t involve a microwave!
This batch of search terms is markedly stranger than previous ones. That’s awesome- I love weirdos. My ‘cupcake metal towers shit flowers‘ search term of last year is nothing compared to ‘when the moon hits your eye like an old pizza pie thats aids’ and ‘how to touch my aunts boobs’!!
So that’s that! Thanks for reading, and making these posts worthwhile. Without you all, there’d be no Cupcake Rehab, let alone Cupcake Rehab International. Well.. okay, there’d be a Cupcake Rehab but really what fun would it be? I’d just be typing all this crap to myself in a padded cell. Yeah, it’s more fun this way
