Each and everyday, many people in the blogging realm are typing in the search terms 13 or mouth. Guess 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?

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.
