News, but not the serious kind

The word bathroom works like a charm…

February 1, 2008

submarine-300.jpgBlog Guy, every month my car pool bets on what will be the most popular items in your blog.

Can you please give us the most popular postingsĀ for January? I’d like to collect my money in time for the weekend, and I’m positive it must have been “Hey boss, check out the milksop!”

You’re pretty sure of yourself, for somebody who writes in italics all the time. Actually, while I was quite proud of getting to use milksop, that one didn’t even make it into the top five. No, if you want to attract huge blog traffic, you put the word bathroom in the headline. Or else you mention Victoria’s Secret.

In January, readers went for these posts:

1. This bathroom door is just painted on!

2. Please tell me he’s wearing pants…

3. Your whole stomach came out your mouth, huh?

4. Sound of Music sequel: Nun With A Gun!

5. Wooly bully, it’s shear horror!
