5 TACKY YEARS! Top 11 Posts for 2012

Friday, 3 August 2012

How’s it feel to be a Green Dot? That’s right, one of those little World Peas is just for you. View the Live Map here. It will display little blinkies that show you who else is here, and it’s anonymous. (We’re at the ass end of the US, just in case you were wondering.)

It’s intuitively obvious to the casual observer that we’re on the verge of taking over the world, so be content in the knowledge that you have assisted with the conquest.

We added an online store and a widget that sort of links to another online store. WorpDress now allows adverts, and they also allow PayPal Tip Jars, so we added that as well. Has any of it paid off? Nah.

We’ve featured the Top Posts for each year since we started in 2007. The numbers indicate this year’s ranking followed by last year’s, and we’ve added a third for all-time ranking (2012/2011/All-Time Rank).  NR indicates Not Ranked.

Click on any image and it’ll take you to the original post.

No. 11/nr – Popeye Dead at 108

No. 10/nr – Mickey Possum has a good attitude.

No. 9/nr – The .Gif Friday Post No.104 – Catsup

No. 8/nr – Babe Cannon

No. 7/2/5 – Amy’s Motivational Poster Collection

No. 6/7/8 – Giant Woolly Bear Caterpillar Discovered Near Las Cruces, NM, Predicts Global Warming for Decades to Come

No. 5/nr – 10/10/10 10:10:10

No. 4/nr – 10:11:10 11/10/11

No. 3/nr – Possum Haiku

No. 2/1/4 – Capybara Lapwarmer

AND THE NUMBER ONE POST FOR 2012 IS:

The .Gif Friday Post No.93 – Cat Fish Robot Jam

It scored at No. 6 in 2011, and it’s at No. 7 on the 5-Year popularity ranking.

We plan to keep going with this baboso unless it becomes a chore, but considering all the fun stuff we’ve found just to keep our self-imposed goal of One Post Per Day, it looks like we’ll be around a while. Cheers!

Holy Poop! We’re Four Years Old!

Thursday, 4 August 2011

Yes, you got that right. On 3 August 2007, Tacky Raccoons belched itself into the blogosphere with little fanfare and a mere handful of hoopla. Now it’s 10PM on the eve of this auspicious occasion, and I’m caught with my pants down and my skirt over my head trying to figure out what to do with only two hours to go, so let’s do this.

Yeah it’s fuzzy until you click on it and see that we’re over 906,000 sharp views, and most of those are prolly Chinese and Russkie bots, but we’re holding strong at about 20K per month despite school being in recession. I don’t know wtf happened in October 2009, but I’ll roll with it.

Oh wait. I know. Let’s have another rundown of the most popular posts for the last year, just like we’ve done for the past three years.

So here are the Top 11 of the past twelve months, with last year’s rankings separated by an appropriate slash. nr = no rating,  indicating that the post either didn’t make rank or wasn’t posted last year. Click on the images to see the original posts.

This year, we’re gonna start with No. 11 because it’s only been up for a short while, but got a wad of hits.

No. 11/nr- The .Gif Friday Post No. 185 – 80 Beetles

No. 10/nr – The .Gif Friday Post No. 145 – The End, Near Miss, Cat Attack

No. 9/nr -Pre-ChatRoulette FAIL

No. 8/5- Lesbian Amputee Dwarf Porn

No. 7/3 -Giant Woolly Bear Caterpillar Discovered Near Las Cruces, NM, Predicts Global Warming for Decades to Come

No. 6/nr -The .Gif Friday Post No. 93 – Cat Fish Robot Jam

No. 5/nr -The .Gif Friday Post No. 108 – Eat It, Walk It, Pump It

No. 4/nr -Death Row Barbie

No. 3/4 -LOL Ferret Episode 1

No. 2/2 -Amy’s Motivational Poster Collection

No. 1/nr – Capybara Lapwarmer

I gotta tell you, I’d never have guessed that Ms. Capylady would make the top ten, let alone make it to Number One on the 2011 Tacky Raccoons Hit Parade.

I’ve traded a couple of emails with Ms. C since this was first posted, and I congratulate her on her meteoric rise to the coveted position on the TR Top Ten.

And that’s exactly what makes blogging fun.  In four years, I still don’t know what’s gonna get a hit. I just toss out whatever amuses me, and I’m happy that some of it amuses you, too.

Blogoversary II: Our 2nd Year’s Top 10

Sunday, 2 August 2009

cactus-sign-tacky-raccoon

Whoa. Two freakin’ years (not counting the undercover ghost-posting stalking decades) and y’all are still with us, doin’ the Number 6,  a-ridin’ into town a-whompin’ an’ a whumpin’.

Our first post was on Friday, 3 August 2007, but since we don’t wanna interrupt your Monday work schedule with all the hoopla, we turned back the calendar by a day.  We also know, since we track the stats, that most of y’all check in here during your working hours anyway.  Believe it or not, our statistics have a pulse. You have no excuse for not clicking through all 11 links below, because it’s still the weekend.

Tacky Raccon2..1Many people have asked us about our now world famous TR logo.  Once we’d decided on a blogname, we realized that we needed a mascot, so I doodled a raccoon that had just realized he’d blundered through a puddle of rubber cement. That was it. One shot. On a scrap of notebook paper. Serious history.

There are a lot of reasons why I like posting inanities on this blog, but I can’t think of any right now. All I know is it keeps me from oiling the chainsaw and putting the dishes away. Mostly I enjoy the camaraderie  of my fellow blogheads and the opportunity to crosspost trash talk with relative impunity. Above all, comments from near and far keep me sitting here and avoiding “Dancing With The Stars” reruns.

So here are the greatest traffic producers of the past year, with the previous year’s ranking separated by an appropriate slash.
NR = no rating,  indicating that the post either didn’t make rank or wasn’t posted last year.

My personal favorite for this year, Popeye’s Obituary, didn’t rank, but it’s barely a monthski old.  A simple click on any image below will take you to the realm of the original coolness.

SO HERE WE GO:

No. 10/1  – Another Great Christmas Gift Idea

No. 9/nr – Lesbian Amputee Dwarf Porn

No. 8/4 – Faith Enhancer

No. 7/nr – LOL Ferret: On Watch

No. 6/nr – Southern California Fires October 2007

No. 5/2 – Nice Stained Glass

No. 4/5 – Pirates Attack Venice With Rabbit

No. 3/nr – Giant Wooly Bear Caterpillar Discovered
[Don’t miss the comments on this one.]

No. 2/3 – Batmobile Babe Magnet

AND THE NUMBER ONE POST OF THE YEAR IS:

No. 1/10 – LOL FERRET: Episode 1

Thanks to all you loyal readers,  commenters and linkers.

Y’all make me feel like a hundred bucks.
