Somebody needs to go check on Oregon.

Is this even real? This is hilarious.  From Estately via io9: top Google searches from each state.

PIC map what each state googles

I will admit, I didn’t have high hopes for my home state of New Hampshire, but . . . free kittens!  D’awwwwww.  The Estately link lists several of the top Google searches for each state, with a brief analysis.  Some of my favorites:

FLORIDA:  Alligator Wrestling / Botox / Eyebrow Piercing / Hulk Hogan / Juviderm / Lice / Mazda Miata / MDMA / Obamacare / Stand Your Ground / Swingers / Viagra / What is sarcasm? GEORGIA:  Athlete’s Foot / Butt Implants / Cooking Crack / Divorce / Spanx / Weave / What is tofu? MICHIGAN:  Knock-Knock Jokes / Little Caesars / Omelette / Taco Bell / Topless Bar / Where do babies come from? OREGON:  Allah / Sex / Spork Analysis:  Somebody needs to go and check on Oregon.

If this is a hoax, I don’t want to know it. How did your state make out? Are you surprised?
