When’s the last time that Google dropped something?
The last time I used this acronym in our development team’s slack channel, Google recognized it correctly – BMBaCMaB means “Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit”.
But this morning, I used it, and one of my co-workers went looking – and it couldn’t find it.
So, for the first time in my memory, Google’s reach has actually SHRUNK. Something that I could look up before, I now can’t find.
(Google did find several usages of “#bmbacmab”, but nowhere that the acronym was explained. I call that a loss).
I figured I’d go ahead and post this, by way of associating the acronym with the phrase. I hope it works.
I do know that Google knows about Fat Charlie’s Diary; when I google for “no huhu, cobber”, the first two links are leads to MIAHM pdfs, but the third is an old FCD post. I have no idea whether or not other folks seem the same thing when they google that phrase; I’m not other folks, and I’m not interested enough to find out 🙂
The first time I heard the phrase “Butter my butt and call me a biscuit” was, I believe, in the movie Cars – I’m sure that it was Tow Mater who said it. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard it used other than that in any mass media.
(N.B. – I’m only talking about this because I don’t want to talk about anything else today. Thursdays are always a one hour Eichorn bike workout, 40 minutes to an hour run or ellip, and a core workout; today, none of that happened. I’m a bit sick to my stomach today; I even found myself drinking some Pepto. But I don’t think that that’s the problem. I wonder if it’s depression; could be stress. It can’t be fatigue – I haven’t done enough in the last week for this to be fatigue. So I’m sort of in avoidance mode today – I’ve felt it, and I’ve prayed about it, but I ain’t done anything about it. In the meantime, I’ll talk about stuff that doesn’t matter).
