But today the “it’s a good thing” team won. I decided to ask the Great Internet about something that I’ve wondered about since early childhood. Grabbing my laptop, I fired up my web browser and typed:

And lo & behold … it TOLD ME WHY!!!

Granted, it also told me fourteen other things I didn’t need to know and will probably be trying to sell me pancake batter for the rest of my life. But for now … thank you, Internet. Take the win. For today, at least.
