Looking for posts in all the wrong places

Many people don't realize that the search bar at the top left of this blog is specifically dedicated to More Rants than Raves. It's a great way to track down your favorite posts from the past without having to slog through the archives. All you have to do is type in a keyword or phrase and click the little magnifying glass icon.

Go ahead and give it a try!

Actually, don't. After I made this post I searched for a bunch of stuff in my blog and only about half of it showed up. I did some research (get it, re-search?) and found out that the Blogger search bar has been "broken" for the last few years. Apparently Google can't figure out how to fix their search engine. How's that for irony?

Even though the search bar doesn't work very well, I decided to keep this post. I spent a lot of time on it and I don't want it to go to waste. I mean, look at the fancy graphic. And the title? Classic.

I am a little disappointed that my original plan isn't going to work, however. You see, I hid a post entitled "rat turds" in the archives of this blog in hopes that people would type the phrase into the search bar (after seeing my example above). If the Blogger search bar actually worked, they would have been redirected here.

Totally still worth posting, even if the search bar doesn't work. One thing though: I was expecting some real information on rat turds -- like an announcement about an exciting new scientific discovery about the healing powers of rat turds, or some shocking story about how Scientologists eat rat turds to get to the next level and escape Xenu's wrath. I guess there are no secret wonders associated with rat turds and they are just plain old shit after all...too bad.
