Cheerios&safe=off

technology

Okay, don’t ask why, but I was using Google image search for Cheerios. This was the second time in the past couple of weeks, so I really have no idea what got into my head. I guess I just wanted to see what would happen.
Only, for reasons that are even less logical than using Google Image Search (GIS) for Cheerios, I turned the Moderate SafeSearch off. Yes, I was searching for Cheerios without expressly forbidding explicit images.
I have no idea why I did this. None.
You know when it’s late, and you’re convincing yourself it’s time for bed? And then you say, “well, one more site—then bed.” 7 hours later you’re wondering if the 1 hour of sleep you’re getting tonight’s gonna cut it? That is the best explanation I can come up with. Look people, I’m posting a story about an image search, you gotta believe me when I say this is outside my normal blogging behavior.
Still doesn’t explain me and my browser window full of Cheerios boxes. A browser window full of explicit Cheerios boxes. At least, that was what might have happened.
No sooner did I start going through the images, that I realized the potential for — well — Cheerios–related internet filth. Look, I’m not going to judge anybody for what gets their boats all floaty, but I wasn’t really thinking. I may have absolutely no idea what my boredom–induced journey into uncensored Cheerios pics, but I most certainly was not searching for anything approaching adult content.
“It’s Cheerios,” I said to myself. “What could happen?”
This happened. I hate the internet, sometimes.
I hear Cheerios are good for your heart! Pictures, Images and Photos
For you completists, here’s the search (potentially NSFW).

    Dude … is there a joke hiding in here somewhere? I mean you have that keen sense of humor and all; but where’s the joke? Endless images of Cheerios? C’mon, how bad could it be … never mind I don’t want to know.

    Uh, no. Just up, late last night, searching for pics of Cheerios.
    There’s no ‘there’ there.
    Just one of those things you do when there’s not enough cowbell.
