The very best of a goofy month…

November 30, 2010


Goofy was the operative theme for November.

Statistics for this blog show that readers flocked to items on a goofy breast examination scam, the first goofy look at a future queen and a strange choice for a new piece of art for the Louvre.

HUNGARY/The top three items for the month?

A hard-hitting theory about who may be plotting against our supermarket tabloids, a look at a Victoria’s Secret audience participation gimmick that went horribly wrong, and a self-help test to determine who is smarter, you or your Thanksgiving turkey.

Here’s a hint: It probably isn’t you.

So here they are, my 10 most popular blog posts for November:

RUSSIA/10. Can I have a beer first, Doctor?

9. Angelina and the Used Car Dealer?

8. Really? That’s your best argument?

7. The goofy princess bride?

6. This is one really goofy hobby!

5. See the new models at the auto show…

4. We need three more naked chicks?

3. Space alien plot to deny news to shoppers?

2. All you nutjobs, come up onstage now!

And the most popular post for November…

1. Are you smarter than your turkey?

Shra is right – HRH The Prince Charles IS the Goofy King, with Barack Obama making a strong improvement this month.
Solid goofy performances also from Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton.

…though I do like how her shoes blend into the runway. Camo with bling, whodathunkit?

Pass the donuts, Shra!

I would have the same reaction as those guys in the first pic if that model walked past me wearing that. Yowza! :)

I never really thought the POTUS would be so vain as to think he could pull the Jedi mind trick on a turkey but well, there it was.

Spin,the turkey has good reason not to pardon you… why wont you pardon the turkey?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

@Shra & Spin, if I may offer my opinion. I would not pardon the turkey because I have opposable thumbs, can grab a knife, gun, or heavy blunt object, am higher up on the food chain, and find turkey to be just gee-darn delicious!

Wait a minute, ifly… If you really have opposable thumbs, shouldn’t you be reading a better blog?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

No Mr. B., not when my opposable thumbs are used primarily for hitting the space bar while comenting on this blog. Or doing impressions of the Fonz.
