Run Gerbil Run*

I feel like I should call the SPCA or Pet Police or someone else in authority. The gerbils of the world are in danger. Hell, it’s not just gerbils, it’s also mice and hampsters.

Ever since I wrote my post about the gerbil question, I’ve been getting daily hits from people who want to know how, or why, someone would engage in gerbil play. That’s understandable, I guess. People are curious.

It’s just that the past few days, I have been getting an inordinate amount of visitors coming to my blog looking for answers on how to “insert” the little furry little critters. I mean, I’m talking 50 searches a day. Did some “gerbil” related incident happen recently to cause this sudden increase in interest?

On second thought, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.

I'm not a big fan of gerbils. I think it would freak me out to feel their little feet on my hands if I held one. But it makes me sad to think someone would harm a little creature on purpose.

* I originally called this “Hide Your Gerbils!” -- then I thought maybe that wasn’t the best title for this post.

I think the title change was a good call.

As for search hits, most of mine come from "stinky Birkenstocks." Nice to be known for one's ancient, malodorous footwear...
