Most popular posts for August: Surprise, surprise!

September 4, 2009

It’s time to release this blog’s five most popular posts for August, and it underscores that every month I learn something new about my readers’ interests.

For instance, from the wildly popular item illustrated by this photo on the left, I learned that readers of this blog are very curious about special warfare in South Korea.

Who on earth would ever have guessed that?

Almost as baffling, it turned out readers are also quite interested in the nation of Iceland, and especially in the welfare of that country’s contestant in the Miss Universe competition.

So anyway, starting tomorrow this blog will deal in nothing but detailed reports on Iceland and the South Korean military. Go wild, readers!

Meanwhile, these were the top five for last month:

5. And, the ice is free here!

4. Presenting the butt-naked diet!

3. What could go wrong with a vasectomy?

2. Another chick with huge mugs

And the post with the most traffic for August:

1. These guys are special forces, huh?
