HOLY CRAP! I MISSED OUR 11th BLOGOVERSARY!

Monday, 26 August 2019

Tacky Raccoons Be Crawlin' 300
Yeah, I missed it by almost a month.

On Friday, 3 August 2007, the date of our first posted post that was posted, the world twitched imperceptibly, a global nanoflinch, an earthquake with the power of a morning fart, or less. It’s our 11th Anniversary, because this:

3 August 2007 – Whelped
3 August 2008 – 1st year Blogoversary
3 August 2019 – 11th year Blogoversary!

As of that (missed) date, there were 4,731 posts in our archives.

Steal, lift, purloin, burgle and abscond with anything you find here, just link back and give us credit for finding the stuff before you did.

We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since 3 August 2008 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.

–Previous Top 11 hits linked here

The numbers adjacent to the titles indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third number is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2019).

“NR” denotes “Not Ranked.”

Click on any image below and it’ll take you to the original post. So let’s go!


No. 11/NR/563 – The Stomach Contents Of A Giant Isopod


No. 10/NR/901 – The .GIF Friday Post No. 472 – Cooler Pwnd, Dance Hard & Warehouse Windsurfing

mrgoogle_cropped1

No. 8/3/94 – Hello. I Am Mr. Google.

Try It Before You Buy It: “Clean Up On Aisle 5.”

Try It Before You Buy It

[Found here.]

Steamboat McGoo says “Adios Amoebas.”

Thursday, 3 March 2011

It’s a quiet day in the blogosphere when one of my favorite bloggers decides to call it quits. Steamboat McGoo has already poured acetone on Aardvarks & Asshats and melted all threads prior to January 2011. (A&A was always my first stop after Drudge. Go figger.)

Here’s to you, McGoo. May you continue to piss fire on whatever is in your way. –Bunk

[Update 4 March 2011: A big fat birdy just told me that the site may be changing hands. Film at 11.]

Snake Calculation

Wednesday, 26 May 2010

I never take a challenge sitting down, so when Steamboat McGoo spotted a black racer on his chimney and asked for estimates on its length, how could I refuse?  After all, my ancestors specialized in reptilian length prognostication.

S. McGoo rewarded me with the honor of posting my snake calculations DIRECTLY UNDER HIS BANNER HEADER. (Click on the image unadulterated big to make it.)

Such an honor bestowed requires reciprocity, so I’ve added Aaardvarks & Asshats to our glorious blogroll. You goo, McGo!

TR Spoofed by VE

Monday, 17 August 2009

Tracking Balloons_VE 090817

VE has been posting parodies of  sites on his blogroll, and today is our roasting.   More here.

Other news:  The computer at TR Headquarters threw a fit over the weekend, and I spent most of Saturday trying every trick in the toolbox, occasionally getting it to boot without crashing, only to have it crash again. No virus detected, and resetting the system worked only temporarily.

Yesterday I took it into the hospital. I’m hoping that it’s nothing worse than a failed power supply.

[Update:  The hospital called a while a go.  Corrupted sectors on the hard drive.  We’re talking reformat city. Crap.]

Amy Tagged Me.

Tuesday, 4 August 2009

TinTin's Pharoah

Although I already post occasionally on AmyOops, she smack-tags me with this.  A “6 Things That Make Me Happy” meme.  Ugh.

I’m inclined to answer all six with various combinations of asparagus and beer, because when combined, they cover all five acceptable senses at once. The sixth one might be troublesome, but I could shout it down fairly easily.

So, I decided to answer the meme honestly. Except for Mrs. Strutts, Bunkessa and Bunkarina, here’s what made me happy today:

1. This.

2. That.

3. The Other.

4. These.

5. Those.

6. Everything here.

I suggest y’all tag yourselves with this meme on the honor system. I’m gonna enjoy my asparagus + diuretic of choice instead.  –Bunk

The Manly Blogger Guy Award

Thursday, 30 July 2009

hai-karate_ArchiesArchives 090730

I never turn down awards, even from Archie. He and I don’t see eye-to-eye on basic economics and politics.

I don’t recall exactly, but I think we had a cordial discussion on whether a janitor should be paid the same as the owner of the company that employs the janitor, and  I said no.  Regardless, Archie’s basically a good guy with a cool blog.

Since I don’t wear perfume, I’ll pass on this prized and coveted award to:
Amy Oops
Raincoaster

Nurse Myra
VE
Feng
and Nick.

[Thanks, Arch: All in fun, dude!]

Zombie Babe Magnet

Monday, 27 October 2008

[This was emailed to TR by Dan S, but I don’t know the original source.  More after the break.]

And Just in case you need to defend yourself, here’s “How to Survive a Zombie Attack.”

Your Pal,  Bunk
