Google Visual Deals Wants Me to Marry Adrien Brody and Thinks Zac Efron is a Piece of Meat

Every morning, as my brain slowly defrosts with the help of a cup of coffee, I like to read Facebook and some gossip websites. My favorite is called Dlisted. I figure it’s important work, in case I’m ever on Jeopardy! and need to know pop culture. Not because I’m shallow or like to laugh or anything. No! Margaret 100% serious author! Margaret smash! Margaret keep façade!

Also, pop culture (entertainment etc) is also the only category I can reliably beat my husband in when we play Trivial Pursuit.

Anyway, somehow, I got Google visual deals turned on. I almost disabled it yesterday but I’m glad I didn’t. If you’re shopping someplace, Visual Deals looks at the photo you’re looking at and tells you if somebody has a better price on that product. Visual Deals doesn’t work with all photos. It didn’t work with the photos on my site (not that I went through all of them).

Today I noticed when my cursor hovered over the pictures Dlisted linked to, it gave me some pretty interesting suggestions, so I took screenshots of them.

Cameron Diaz. Suggestions: circus clowns, Care Bears, Dr. Seuss characters, a cute baby invitation thing.

Kendall Jenner. Pinatas, Backyardigans, Balloons. Oh, My!

Zac Efron. Bourbon cinnamon flavored something (mmm actually that sounds yummy). Pumpkin scented candles. Key lime cake pops. Chocolates. Steak.

Oh my gosh. Google Visual Deals just made me fall in love with Zac Efron.

Adrien Brody. Beautiful white horse with long flowing locks. Wedding cake. Wedding bouquet. Gift tags. Obviously Google Visual deals thinks he’s good White Knight husband material.

And finally, for Jane Child, nothing. Because she’s Jane Child and there’s no comparison.

  1. Hi Margaret! Just wanted to let you know a couple of things. One, I FINALLY read Housewife (finished last night, read it in three days) and loved it. Good job on that! Two, I mentioned it and you in my blog post for today at –Julie Kibler is one of the contributors, so I’m pretty sure you are familiar with it. And three–wow do we have some stuff in common! I’m enjoying your blog. Go Army, beat Navy. 🙂
