2010 in Review According to WordPress

In my last posting, I shared my Top 10 stories from 2010 with you. Below is what you, my reading public, found most fascinating over the past 12 months. Not surprisingly, your favorite topic was – wait for it – BOOBS!

Uncle Frankie is just shocked and amazed kiddies. Not really.

The funniest part is that, in three years of publishing this blog, I’ve only posted “Boob Content” twice that I can think of. And even then, the posts were not essentially about the boobs themselves. Nonetheless, there are certain truisms in life, one of which is that everyone – male or female – loves boobs.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how Stuff Frank Finds Funny did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meterâ„¢ reads Wow.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 5 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 106 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 192 posts. There were 147 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was August 23rd with 819 views. The most popular post that day was A Quarter-Million Chinese Boobs.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were democraticunderground.com, alphainventions.com, 74.125.67.100, search.aol.com, and facebook.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for boobs, big boobs, asian boobs, asian tits, and big breasts.

Other interesting search phrases which brought visitors to Stuff Frank Finds Funny?

The Real Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Wilma, Daphne and Fred

As a kid I was a big fan of the Scooby Doo cartoon series. As a young adult I did quite a bit of voice-over work for corporate training videos and radio spots. Later in life I was also very fortunate to have done over 80 hour-long live radio shows on a couple of big-time stations.

Long story short: I’m an aficionado of professional voice talent and a sucker for Shaggy – who was voiced by Casey Kasem of American Top 40 radio fame. I hope you enjoy this interview with the people behind the characters as much as I did.

BTW: I hope to meet Frank Welker one day. He’s a great talent in spite of his weird name.

Sex Ed Teacher By Day, Porn Star By Night

Who says “Those who can’t teach”?

Certainly not Benedict Garrett who goes by the porn star name of “Johnny Anglais.”

My boy Johnny, 30, has been teaching sex education to high-schoolers at least since he became head of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education at Beal High School in Ilford, Essex, in 2008. But, even though he encourages his students to practice safe sex, he often rides bareback while on the set.

According to this story from the Daily Mail web site, Johnny doesn’t see what all the fuss is about:

‘I’m not ashamed of what I’ve done.

‘It is something I do in my personal life that doesn’t go against anything I teach the kids.

‘There are many more immoral ways to earn money than romping in front of the camera.

‘Lawyers defend paedophiles, bankers raise money using questionable means and large corporations often put finances ahead of the government.’

He added that he doesn’t use condoms when performing because he believes the risk of catching anything from a fellow porn star is ‘minute’.

Let’s face it folks, in today’s economy, everybody needs to working at least two jobs. And when it comes to sex, what kid could ask for a better teacher than Johnny Anglais?

Beneath The Valley Of The Ultravixens

Found a great new video site today: Weirdo Video. Here’s the first of what I’m sure will be a lot of films I’ll be bringing you; the theatrical trailer for the Russ Meyer “sexploitation” film (co-written by Roger Ebert), Beneath The Valley Of The Ultravixens.

There’s a great run-on sentence in the middle of the voice-over. I’d love to have a transcription of it.

IBM Supercomputer to Appear on Jeopardy!

This is pretty spooky. According to this article on cnet news, an IBM supercomputer named Watson will compete against two human opponents on the game show Jeopardy! as soon as this fall.

I’ve been a fan of Jeopardy! since back when Art Fleming was the host, but never thought I’d see this day come. I also “auditioned” for Jeopardy! recently using their online testing and failed miserably.

If this machine can not only come up with the answers, but understand and process human speech, vet through the puns and hints, convert the answer to the form of a question – and click the button – faster than a couple of the best trivia players in the world, we’re all in big trouble.

Pastor Gas

Alright, I know it’s juvenile and scatological but, God help me, it’s funny.

I find very few things funnier than an over-the-top televangelist, but it turns out that syncing 29 random fart sounds to this guy’s squints turns out to be one of those few things.
