Day Forty: 13 Mouth Facts


Each and everyday, many people in the blogging realm are typing in the search terms 13 or mouthGuess one place their glorious search takes these inquiring minds? Yep! You’re such a smart cookie! Right here: the happy little place of Everyday Aspergers.

Because of the lovely search term mouth, my Proverbial Foot in the Mouth post keeps ranking in the top five out of all my blog posts.

I can understand the obsession with the awesome number 13. Who doesn’t love number 13 facts? But why are numerous earthlings searching for the word mouth? Is it something to do with the Mayan calendar?

My middle-son offered studiously, when queried about the blogging-mouth-hunts, “It’s quite obvious, Mom. They are looking for a good dentist, and want to see what type of job the dentists are doing.”

Great thinking. But when I think of people searching for the word mouth, my mind doesn’t go in that exact dentist-handy-work direction.

One can only hypothesize.

Because I cannot control the search term mouth from boosting a post’s ranking—a post I consider mediocre in comparison to the other grand knowledge found  on this mighty blog—today I have spent many, many hours searching for 13 intriguing mouth images and  13 facts about mouths.

My favorite part was Googling: “Do Hippos Really Fart through their Mouths?”  I still don’t know. Although, I found some disturbing YouTube videos on the subject matter. Okay, without further nonsensical ado, I present a one of a kind list of 13 Mouth Facts.

13  Mouth Facts

People whose mouths have narrow roofs are more likely to snore.

It takes food seven seconds to go from the mouth to the stomach.

In Pennsylvania you may not catch a fish by any body part except the mouth.

A jellyfish passes waste material through its mouth.

An average dog’s mouth exerts 150 to 200 pounds of pressure per square inch.

A person cannot taste food unless it is mixed with saliva.

The crocodile bird flies into the open mouth of a crocodile and cleans its teeth for it.

The snail’s mouth is no larger than the head of a pin, but it can have over 25,000 teeth.

It takes more muscles to frown than smile.

Your tongue is the strongest muscle in your body.

Some moths never eat anything as adults because they don’t have mouths. They live on their caterpillar energy.

When a person pees a small deposit of urine enters the mouth through the saliva glands.

Just as we all have unique fingerprints, we all have unique tongue prints.

The Geek Posse Chimed in on more random facts “we” found while surfing the net.

Sir Brain: 80% of the brain is water.

LV: You cant’ tickle yourself!

Prophet: The sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog” uses every letter of the alphabet.

Crazy Frog: A group of frogs is called an army.

Little Me: Scientists say the higher your I.Q., the more you dream.

Crazy Frog cites the example of this anomaly as a side lesson: A frog when dropped should move towards the ground. If the frog remains in mid-air, the levitation would be considered an anomaly. Or considered super darn Matrix-Cool!

Sam Craft's Mouth. Or I guess, teeth!

Note: I have not confirmed all of these facts to be truthful. Please never rely on the validity of the Internet or the validity of Crazy Frog.

  1. i spend a lot of time trying to puzzle out the search words that lead people to my blog. i’ll see very weird search terms, then have to think back, figure out which post is eliciting that search link.

    i won’t say what the search words were…but the same search words kept popping up over and over…words that had, shall we say, a sexually odd connotation…i finally figured out that i had a post where i refer to a lunchbox i had as a kid…i specifically referred to it as my “sexy rambo lunch box”…and yikes, the people who viewed that post, they were looking for something very, very different. had to re-word some of the sentences.

    anyway. people, right? go figure.

    1. Thanks for reading the post and commenting. That’s funny. Glad you figured it out! Yikes, is right. My funniest to date was the one I mentioned in a previous post: “cheerleader sticks leg down garbage disposal.” Very odd thing to have 4 people searching for. Go figure? Re-wording was a great idea. Thanks again. Cheers ~ Sam 😉

    1. Oh, good. I had a lot of chocolate and caffeine yesterday…and the mouth facts sounded super funny to me last night; and then I awoke this morning, had a second look, and thought: what was I thinking?. lol. It’s nice to hear other people are laughing besides me. love 🙂 Sam

  2. I spent four days with a grumpy husband, a sick kid, and the third round of stomach flu this year. I’ve been doodling morosely and standing on a chair to paint ( my son want’s to “help” so I paint ontop of the tallest bookshelf). I am sick of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

    Anyway. I’ve read your past three posts and I am just so happy to laugh. Your list and great visuals made my spirits soar. I sometimes think so much and become so serious that I get lost in my brain. I feel reconnected with the happier, sillier me.

    Thank you. 🙂

    1. Love the whole first part of your comment. lol. Sounds like me sometimes. No fun when family is sick. Lol about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. So happy to offer a spirit lift. I reread my posts to laugh at myself! Thanks again for your kind thoughts. Hope everyone feels better fast and you get to watch something you like on television, or better yet get to get out of the house and go to the movie theater, or something you enjoy. 🙂 You are welcome, friend. ~ Sam

  3. At first, I read your third mouth fact as:
    “In Pennsylvania you may not catch a fish WITH any body part except the mouth.”

    Oh dear! It’s alright if you’re a pelican, but a bit more problematic for humans…and gross!

Thank you for your comments :)
