Ray's blog has been viewed 24,379 times. (I'm sure that most of these views were inadvertent, like when you google 'cat food' and Ray's blog surfaces because of his fascination with that item. But still, 24,000 is a pretty big number. It kind of boggles the mind.) But that isn't the baffling part. The baffling thing is that Ray's Number One blog, which has been viewed 508 times, roughly 400 more times than it's nearest competitor, is The Pullet Has a Limp (click the title to view). The second most viewed (130) is Another Poop Post, whose popularity can probably be explained by young boys googling 'Poop' and the third (103) is The Magic of Yogurt, which is probably viewed by people researching yogurt or magic or both.
SO, how do you explain the popularity of The Pullet Has a Limp? Are there really that many people out there with gimpy chickens? If so I think there needs to be some major research into why chickens go lame all of a sudden. And if that isn't the case, what is the explanation? Is it an Orwellian thing? (the original reference came from his diary).
If you have ANY ideas as to why this posting is number one, please tell me. I'm really, really curious.
