Thanks to the previous post and some weird fluke of a Google algorithm, this blog is near the top of results when people search for info on the Krugman-O’Reilly debate. I only know this because several hundred people have come here after searching for info on the show. I guess staying at home on a Saturday night, watching third rate basic cable, and then blogging about it isn’t that common.
There was another Google-induced spike in traffic this week. My arch nemesis, Irish pop music sensation, Bryan McFadden, was involved in a car accident. If you’re curious, here are the details of this douchebag’s brush with death:
Former Westlife star Brian McFadden almost killed himself recently – when he smashed his Ferrari into a brick wall at 190 miles per hour.
I never thought I’d see my own name in such a ridiculous sentence. What’s really annoying is that it’s not even his real name. His was originally Bryan with a ‘y,’ but changed it to the normal spelling for a really stupid reason:
The Irish singer, who has changed the spelling of his name from Bryan in an attempt to distance himself from his former pop life, skidded on a wet country road after swerving to avoid an animal.
Now I have to deal with him, his pre-teen Irish fans, and even a professional lookalike. The surge in press combined with misspellings prior to the name change has resulted in Big Fat Whale no longer being the number one result for ‘Brian McFadden.’ I’d be fine with it if the asshole died, but he’s going to continue stealing my obscure thunder until the Great Shitty Music Purge of 2013.
