Another Update on Another Post.

Last November, I received an email with a gif called "recess at the asylum".
Someone had taken a snippet from "Ace Ventura" and pasted on the heads of an assortment of Democratic Party loonies.

It's interesting to note the placement of the heads. Hillary Clinton is the main character....with Obama in the background. I wonder if the person would have put Obama in front had he created the gif after Obama's coronation.

I thought the gif was funny, so I put in up on my blog. [Recess at the Asylum]

Funny thing......since then, that post has generated more than 50% of all the traffic this blog gets on any given day. Type "recess at the asylum" into the Google search engine and my blog is number one.

That post also comes up first using Yahoo and Alta Vista.

Even though the post gets a lot of traffic, the bounce rate for that page is high too. That means that not too many of that page's visitors go one to look at other areas of my blog. I don't know how to correct that.

I'm going to try an experiment. I'll put the same gif on my D'offus of the Big-Doofus blog and we'll see what effect, if any, that has on the traffic for the Big Doof.

I don't know if this says something about the inmates running the asylum, but when I say the GIF I thought of the music video by M for the "Triplets of Bellville. At a couple points there are some people dancing similarly to this & in the end of the video, they haul him off in a straight jacket.

PS The song, French or English version, works with the gif as well.
