We’re all guilty of Googling weird things from time to time. But sometimes our curiosity takes us down a truly strange and inexplicable rabbit hole.
That’s what happened when a Twitter user typed “Peppa pig height” into Google (yes, Peppa Pig, as in the titular star of a British animated children’s TV show).
The search result read 7’1.” That’s right—we’re supposed to believe a 4-year-old female cartoon pig is seven-foot, one-inch tall—or the same height as Shaq.
The user posted a screenshot of it on Twitter, and the internet went hog wild.
Although it was not confirmed to be true, memes and jokes started pouring in from every direction on Twitter, with many people commenting on Peppa’s missed calling as a hoops star.
And as one Twitter user pointed out, if Peppa’s 7’1,” her dad has to be somewhere in the neighborhood of Godzilla and King Kong.
According to a popular fan site, Peppa is actually 3’9,” which sounds a little more right.
This isn’t the first time the internet freaked out about a cartoon character’s reported height. A while back, a report surfaced that animated toddler and children’s cartoon character Caillou was 5’11.” Which, again, makes no sense for a kid, cartoon or not. And it’s not like they ever explained his astonishing growth in a cool backstory like the Ninja Turtles.
Speaking of which, how tall are the Ninja Turtles?
