So there I was last night — sitting in my apartment, minding my own business, listening to The Bar Exam 2 as I checked this site’s traffic stats. Imagine my surprise when I saw this:
That’s right: “Baby dick.”
As of about 8:30 p.m. Eastern time on Jan. 14, 2009, “baby dick” was the top search term for this is the city line. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Still true at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 15, 2009. Dope.)
Now, there are perfectly logical explanations for why this humble site showed up in the search dragnet when Baron Von Kid Trapp set his likely knifenailed, certainly forever unclean fingers to the keys:
- One of the first posts I wrote prominently featured Boston Celtics “point forward” Glen “Big Baby” Davis;
- A video post ostensibly written to make fun of a fucking crazy person included the tag, “this is my baby”;
- The site’s second post, which explains this blog’s title, included the tag, “Nice name … dick.”
See? A perfectly cromulent explanation.
Still, one thought keeps scraping at the base of my skull … that there’s something AWESOME about being a completely non-sexual Web site that turns up when an inveterate creep Googles “baby dick.” So, in the interest of trying to ensure that this happens again:
Now, come on, horrific, horrific freakshows. Let’s get this baby dick train rolling!
P.S.: My fiancee’s pep talk on doing more legwork to increase this site’s visibility: “You can’t just hope that people will search for ‘baby dick’ on the Internet and find your Web site!” Um, yeah, actually, I can.
