Today I offer you incontrovertible proof of one of the fundamental principles of the internet, in the form of this blog’s stats.
This humble blog typically receives almost no traffic whatsoever, allowing its proprietor to post what he wishes with nary a thought about how it might be received, and our patented statcycle to meander along the gentle hills and valleys of day-to-day page view fluctuation without becoming winded.
However one innocent little post, two weeks ago, about the World Naked Bike Ride, generated more than ten times the normal traffic, despite its terrifying lead image of pipe-swinging tattooed London exuberance. And that post’s after effects continue to be felt to this day, as naked-cyclist-seekers alight on this blog in search of naked-cyclist-information and, dare I say, naked-cyclist-tittilation.
Thereby proving an immortal principle, namely that the internet exists to deliver pictures of naked people.
Well if that’s what the people want, that’s what the people shall have. I hereby present a veritable rainbow of naked cyclists, for your viewing enjoyment.*
Thereby also proving a second timeless maxim, namely “ye blogger will do anything to increase ye stats.”
