No Swelled Head Yet

The people at WordPress, who host this blog: they try to give us bloggers a boost. They wrote me a report on Exit Only for 2012 saying that – get this:

“9,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform and this blog was viewed about 110,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it!”

Well, they try to buck you up . But I know very well that

most of the visitors to my posts were probably only here looking for all my pictures of near-naked people.

Like this photo I once posted of Susan Sarandon, showing what 60 can look like if the ligaments hold up:

is it a wardrobe malfunction for Susan S

Or this nice one, of Marilyn, that I found for one of the times I wrote about her.

Or this great shot where Sophia Loren is seen looking over at Jayne Mansfield.


Or even this one of…. well, I don’t know just WHO these two are but you could have a lot of fun thinking up a caption for this pic:

he gets by with a little help from his friends

But really what brings them here, according to their analysis ? Searches for the word “Speedo,” the term “wardrobe malfunction” and fascinating phrase “the head of Jeremy Bentham,” that particular item being on display in a museum in London

(The head on the dummy is fake; the one under ‘his’ chair is real.)



So there it is.

Like I say, no swelled head yet!

  1. The number one search item that brings folks through my front door is “Richard Simmons”. And the post “Tag Sales”, in which there is only a minor reference to him with pic, is number one as well. The internet…go figure. Based on this, we should combine our efforts and do a Richard Simmons Does Speedos Blog. But we’ll need to work in the mummified heads as well, just cuz it’s so cool!
