The best of a very stupid month…

August 2, 2009

I have to admit July was kind of a goofy month for this blog, and I found that no matter how close I got to the edge, lots of you were right there with me, clicking and reading.

That’s right, you folks played along with the soldier and the melons, the nose-picker, the horrible swim-up bar, even, amazingly, the real honest-to-God snake oil salesman.

Here then, based on reader traffic, were my five most popular posts for July:

5. Who was that guy laughing during the memorial?

4. He’s pickin’ his nose in every shot!

3. Nice melons, soldier!

2. The WORST swim-up bar ever!

And the number one most popular post in this blog for July…

1. We found him! He really exists!

Woah. Just woke up sitting in front of my PC wondering why I typed “THANKS” from within a deep sleep. Well, back to bed. Good night, Mr. Basler.

It’s pretty obvious why you typed “THANKS.” And, we all know that the cognitive ability of deep sleep does not account for that comment, much less the typing of same. What’s not so clear is why you’d just nod back off. Good night Shawn. Have fun in your dream!
