The top 10 posts for a goofy June…

July 2, 2011

June was a very good month for the blog. Our traffic statistics showed that readers flocked to information they could use, along with our hard-hitting exposés of, you know, stuff.

We suggested a Father’s Day gift Dad will never forget, we told you how the rich and powerful manage to look better than you do, and we even told you how to get George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend. Maybe.

We warned you about a very bad idea for a contest, and a retail shopping trend that needs to be stopped quickly.

Did anybody else bring you both the world’s cutest bear AND the secret message on Sarah Palin’s palm? No wonder this is the blog you can’t do without.

Here were my 10 most popular posts for June:

10. The very worst contest idea ever?

9. How the rich and powerful keep fit

8. O brothel, where art thou?

7. Let’s practice those pickup lines, boys!

6. The very worst new retail trend?

5. Palin gets a palm reading?

4. Happy Father’s Day, you’re goin’ fission!

3. Cutest bear on earth visits my blog

2. You betcha those British are comin’!

And the most popular post for June…

1. A skeleton crew of bikini models?

This blog that I’m reading
just has to be
much fun and so silly
not literary
‘stead of thinkin’
I’ll be blinkin’
at odd photos
while coffee I’m drinkin’.
The June blogs were merry
and I haven’t learned one darn thing!

Anything BG can post
No one can post better.
BG can post anything better than you!

Medo made his appearance in June, let the people think he is all cute and cuddly. Now Medo will hide behind this tree and formulate his plans. Medo might not be back in July, might not be back in August. But Medo will be back. Medo will bide his time….

Did Elisabetta Canalis fall for any pickup lines yet or is she still available?

I’m with Ifly. Come October, we’ll be reading more stories about Medo. Less cute ones.
