The best of another goofy month

November 27, 2011

November was another month full of news you can use from this blog.

Traffic stats for the 10 most popular items show that readers were especially eager to learn what makes the perfect gift, how to avoid as many of those Kardashians as possible, and what superstars miss most when they’re filming away from home.

They also appreciated my new insights into goofy history, with true stuff like what Abe Lincoln did on the South Lawn, and how King James I amused himself.

And most of all, they valued having a place where they could learn what retail products have been recalled recently. It’s a very long list.

On a personal note, I was happy to see my Fabio item made the top 10 list. I just really liked that one.

Here they are, your favorites for the month…

10. Buy, buy Miss American pie…

9. Okay, so maybe it’s a strange hobby…

8. When superstars shoot on location…

7. Think she’ll notice if we take her purse?

6. So, you guys here on that Groupon deal?

5. Remember to bring protection, honey

4. The King’s playin’ with his crotch again

3. Perhaps you recognize my large chest?

2. Keeping away from the Kardashians

And the most popular item for November…

1. Attention! Everything has been recalled!

BG: if we don’t get Hulga, Lamar, shoes or abs in the next few days, can we get cute animals? Yes, I know that Hulga and Lamar are very cute animals.

I didn’t know we were asking for fantasy photos. I’d like to see new photo of a Republican presidential candidate holding a food item. Those are always entertaining. I still don’t know why Mitt was looking at that corn cob like that.
