I've been probed...

Yesterday I checked if I had gotten any new comments on my blog, nothing special at all and something I do on a daily basis to see if there are any new comments. Usually there is nothing or maybe one or two comments posted, but yesterday to my surprise I noticed almost 10 new comments having been posted on various posts, not by the normal rouges gallery either, people that have never commented before. Surprised, I checked my statistical tool and realized that I had almost ten times the number of unique visitors than a normal uneventful day and that the sudden influx was the result of the people at japanprobe.com had linked to my latest post below about the nice kid's pants.

Since I do have a blog publicly available on the Internet, I think it goes without saying that it's fun when people find the blog and find the contents amusing or interesting, but I’ve also become used to the visitor number that I have at the moment and I do not aggressively do any efforts to spread the blog at the moment. So the massive influx (by my standards, mind you) took me by surprise and made me feel a little violated in an oddly pleasing way. I felt... probed...

If any of the Japanprobe people are reading this, hey guys, thanks for the link and as long as it’s you, you can probe me.

Heehe I know how you feel ... I had a huge influx of visitors via Stumble Upon a few months ago, thanks to a post where I attempted to explain/elaborate on European stereotypes, and it was so strange to see the visitor stats shoot up so high so fast! Of course it tapered off after a day or two, and within a week things were back to normal.

Now to figure out how to replicate that success, or to trigger such a wildfire again! :D

Ask, and you shall be probed.

Actually, I think it was the funny pants post. That was hilarious! Maybe they make big size for kaachan. I can just picture it now, mom and little daughter, strolling hand in hand down the street with matching f*** pants on. Lovely.

Happy to probe you any day salaryman-san!

With all this probing I bet you don't know if you're coming or going!

I saw some crazy Japanese pants advertised on the train (I'm British so by pants I mean underwear here).

They are like nappys for salarymen to absorb their pee stains, but they look like normal pants.

Theres a photo of them here:

Wearing the Nappy pants and FXCK pants at the same time is now my lifes goal.

In any case, I should probably buy that coffee enema set in the picture so I'm ready for another probing!
