There sure is a lot to know about the great state of Kansas.
You know, like why do tornadoes happen here? Why do Kansans eat cinnamon rolls with their chili? Or why do out-of-staters have to keep making those typical “Wizard of Oz” jokes at us?
But not one of those “why do” questions are Kansas’ most-asked questions on Google.
In fact, our state’s most-asked questions may be a little embarrassing.
Never miss a local story.
Kansas seems to be most curious about cats ... and bodily functions.
“We Google everything – hilarious, private, embarrassing, painfully obvious questions at all hours of the day, all week long,” All Home Connections, an AT&T retailer, said in a release. The retailer compiled each state’s most-commonly asked question using Google Trends and published their results on Nov. 20.
“Fortunately for us, no one can track our Google search history,” the retailer said. “Except Google Trends, of course.”
By using Google Trends, each state’s most-asked questions happened to be “why do” questions except for Wyoming, which was more interested in “how” than “why.” How to kiss, that is.
In Kansas, “Why do cats knead?” and “Why do I sweat so much?” are the most commonly searched “why do” questions on Google, according to All Home Connections.
But Kansans are not alone in their interest of pets and bodies.
“We found that most states are curious about pets, our bodies, human behavior, nature and the Yankees,” All Home Connections said.
According to Live Science, nobody is quite sure why they do it, but supposedly an adult cat kneads when they are feeling happy or content.
Well, you can Google that one yourself.
