The very, very best of March…

April 3, 2011


It’s time to reveal this blog’s 10 most popular items for the month of March.

It seems clear that my readers are a blogger’s dream. They are hungry for information, and not too particular about how accurate it is.

BRITAIN-WEDDING/BELFASTFor example, they loved my report on the updated, modernized Bible, as well as the item about driving cars with only our minds.

The entertainment industry was also a big draw, as readers flocked to my report on Jennifer Aniston’s old fragrance and my pitch for a new sitcom starring Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson.

A careful analysis of the March statistics found that for some reason my readers love the word Middleton, so I will try to use it as often as possible in the future.

However, it would be a mistake to presume that Kate Middleton figured in more top 10 items than anyone else in March.

Sure, she did appear in two of them. But Lamar showed up in three…

BRITAIN/10. No booty here, and that’s the gospel!

9. Two and a Half Morons?

8. Learn touch typing the fun way?

7. Welcome to Brassieres 101, ladies…

6. Just like Kate, only different…

5. I’ve got you, under my skin…

4. Juicy fruits in our birthday suits?

3. It smells like Jennifer has been here…

2. Batter Up!

And the number one most popular item for March…

1. The worst car feature ever invented?

I’m a blogger’s dream??? I knew it! I frequently think I am part of someone’s dream and if I could get them to wake up (or at least dream something a tad more normal) I’d get my life back!

Then again, I am thankful to be a blogger’s dream and not one of Charlie Sheen’s nightmares.

I had the same feeling, Crow. So much stupidity and misinformation packed into just 31 days…

I couldn’t believe the mind control car post made it to the Top 10, then I went back and saw all the comments – some WAY too serious, and now it makes sense. Wait – no it doesn’t. But I am impressed with Shra not tasing the %^$# out of someone.

Oh well, April is a whole new month…

And when BG says, “my readers love the word Middleton,” he means “skeres loves Kate Middleton” but is just being polite. :)

That’s my Lamar–ever the newsmaker and headline grabber. Sigh. It hurts to share him but I must.

I’ve just realised that in that bottom picture, Ms Middleton’s hands are the exact same shade as her coat… Are we in danger of getting a Zombie Princess?!

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Would it really matter that much, Crow?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Matter? Ooh no. I’m looking forward to her going all brain hungry…

And here I thought that breaking my obsession with constantly answering here and worrying about that yellow waxy build up on my kitchen floor was one of the best happenings during March! 😉

Hey my lovely lady in blue made it to the top ten! I did find out her name but I ain’t tellin’ no one cause she is all mine. 😉

As for Kate, i wonder how fwd hasnt replied yet… he would so darn pleased to see 3 pics of his idol, all in the same post! 😀
Mr.Pilot, I am disappointed… :(

@Ifly: She’s not Kate’s lookalike, is she? 😀

Posted by fwd079 | Report as abusive

Huh, I just noticed the smiley sunflower thingy on the underneath of the pan that dear Katie is using.
Wait… hold on, I mean, gosh doesn’t Kate have nice legs?

Shra, on general principle, you should zap — and repeatedly zap — anyone who suggests that humor must always (1) be constructive, (2) serve a positive social purpose, and (3) be beneficial to everyone.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

@fwd, nope she is not. There is another lovely lady in blue amongst the list. :)

@shra, why dissapoint? It just shows I have moved on from … know who. :p

@Ifly: Ah I should have known! Good pick I say :)

Posted by fwd079 | Report as abusive

In that case, Doc… i’ll start with zapping you…
Spin, I agree with you,…. and to think I do own boots JUST like that.. teeheeheehe!! 😀
Mr.Pilot, ah well, ok then… I guess.. 😐
