The Pet Image Principle

I do a lot of Google image searches-not that kind (well...), just for various reasons I've had to look up images for a lot of things. One of the things that I noticed in doing this is that there a threshold: If a search has enough pages there is an almost certainty that one or more of those images will be a picture of someone's pet.

This image of someone's pet birds came up for 'motherfucker.'


  1. I have heard so many jokes that involved birds saying "motherfucker" that I understood just how that picture wound up in that search.

  2. For this one the j-peg was called "quite_shoving_motherfucker," I think it was in reference to one of them being a bully. Originally I was going to use a picture of someones cat, but I got lazy trying to find it again.
