Best of the month: our own Oktoberfest

November 1, 2010

Traffic to this blog was up again last month, thanks to our combination of hard-hitting investigative reporting and news you can use to improve your own life.

october obama 300According to October statistics, readers loved our continued coverage of those Government Death Panels, as well as the fashion help we gave to that woman who wanted to make herself less attractive to men.

They appreciated our detailed report on a variety of opportunities for dumbasses, and our revelation of what really brought Lehman Brothers down.

On a personal note, I was thrilled to see they enjoyed my own gripping account of working for the White House in a crucial role, helping grease the way in the president’s relentless search for junk food.

If you missed any of it, it’s all right here. Remember, it probably wasn’t worth reading once, so why not read it again?

October was ‘cream’ month, as borne out by the photos.
Top – Lehman Brothers certainly creamed all their investors
Middle – President ‘does that come with cream?’ O’Bama snacks his way across America
Bottom – Dresses for bridesmaids who have been eating too much cream.

I remember October for the beer and the women who wear shirts that are two sizes too small for their ample assets. Because I am just that superficial. And while it seems no Oktoberfest blogs made it to the top ten it’s ok, they shall live on in my memory.

Oh and I won’t forget Becky with her gleaming tooth. Mr. B. you never did hook me up with her number!

With that amount of junk food, and to top it Michelle’s EvilEye… how do you think the President actually survives?
