So, what does all this mean?
First, that I am getting nowhere near as many comments as Diesel...I'm going to have to ask him seriously about that pact he made with the Devil. Second, food seems to be even more popular than sex...Now that's a shocker! Who would have ever thought that people would be more interested in food than in sex. Then again, without food there wouldn't be too much sex going on, I guess. And finally, politics is a no-no, at least from the looks of these results. My two least popular posts were about politics, even the post about lice got more comments. It looks as though I'll just have to swear off political commentary, but hey, I can always blog about parasites, that doesn't seem to bother anyone (Hey, wait a minute! I thought politicians were parasites).
Psychologist that I am, all these interesting numbers give me an urge to analyze the blog-reader mind, but I know I can't draw any real conclusions from all this because of all those uncontrolled variables and other stuff that scientific journals get very picky about (Damn that scientific rigor!). But, all seriousness aside, from the looks of things, the way to a reader's heart is through food, followed by sex. Stories about kids, animals, and a little religion every once in a while don't seem to hurt either. But politics is another story. Either people are bored by this subject, or it's just too touchy an issue, and somehow I think the latter may be the case. So, if you want to make your blog more popular, or at least get the more comments, you know what to do.
Well, I can't promise I'll never blog about politics again, but I'll try to stick to safer subjects, and since food seems to be the most popular topic, I found a little joke to share about a guy who goes to his girlfriend's house for dinner:
Okay, okay, that wasn't really about food, but farts always seem to be good for a laugh too(or maybe I just spend too much time with my kids). Now, if you want a really good laugh, head on over to Central Snark, where you'll find all the hot topics: food, sex, kids, animals, farts....you name it, it's there. And the link makes a really nifty fart sound when you click on it....Okay, I'm just kidding.A guy goes to his girlfriend's parents' house for dinner. This is his first time meeting the family and he is very nervous. They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal.
He begins to feel a little uncomfortable, thanks to his nervousness and the broccoli casserole. The gas pains practically make his eyes water. Left with no other choice, he decides to relieve himself a bit and ever so gently lets out a tiny fart. It isn't very loud, but everyone at the table hears the poof.
Before he even has a chance to be embarrassed, his girlfriend's father looks over at the dog that is snoozing under the guy's chair, and says in a rather stern voice, "Rover!".
The guy thinks, "This is great! He thinks it's the dog!". A big smile comes across his face. A couple of minutes later, he is beginning to feel the pain again. This time, he doesn't even hesitate. He lets out a much louder and longer rrrrrip.
The father again looks at the dog and yells, "Rover!". Once again the guy smiles and thinks, "Yes! This is perfect!". A few minutes later he needs to let another fart. This time he doesn't even think about it nor does he hold back. He rips a fart so big and so loud that it makes the windows vibrate.
Once again, the father looks at the dog with disgust and yells, "Dammit Rover get out from under the chair before he shits on you!
