When There’s Somethin’ Strange In Your Neighborhood. . .

No, we’re not calling the Ghostbusters, dudes. It’s not like that.

Just something a little odd. So your favorite blog (this one, dude! Sheesh!) got a huge spike in traffic yesterday and I’m not really sure why.

I mean, we’re talking 10 times our normal daily visitors hit the site on Thursday. The vast majority of them came in through a yahoo.com image search for the word “dude” and went to this page. It’s simply a post about some of the things I found while googling the image search for the word “dude.” I’m sensing a trend here.

It has a picture of an inaction figure of Jeff Lebowski, an obamaized poster of the dude hisownself and a picture of Stephen Tyler looking very, very, appallingly strange, almost, you know, like a lady.

That’s it. And yet it drew a huge number of people.

You dudes wouldn’t know anything about it, would you? Probably not, considering that, having checked the stats on this, I found that all those image searches came from, of all places, Turkey. Yeah, the country Turkey. Now, either Jeff Lebowski has a huge following in Turkey that has just discovered the movie, or there’s some sort of crazed programmer with a little too much time on her hands living in Turkey.

Either way, it’s not the only strange searches that have come this way lately. Sure we have an eclectic mix of posts, but some of these are a bit more eclectic than even I’m aware of.

Trying to talk to your wife? Sure, that’s understandable. I can think of a number of posts that might apply to that one. Things all men should be able to cook? Yep. No problem.

But Richard Simmons’ wife? Alexander the Great’s wife?

Dude, I’ve got no idea why that sort of thing brings anyone here. Of course, they’re more than welcome. In fact, the more the merrier.

I’m pretty merry right now, so let’s have some more. Or something like that.

Satur-Dude 2

Some interesting visuals of The Dude.

I know. Sorry I keep focusing on this variation of the dude. But, I was in a rush and it was either this or a shot from Dude, Where’s My Car or whatever.

Enjoy the in-action figure, as well as how to feed The Dude.

Saturday Funnies: Dude

by Richard

Sometimes I get bored. Sometimes when I’m bored, I’ll start flicking through the google machine and see what’s the haps, as the young dudes say.

With that in mind, I started flicking through the image results that came up when I googled one word: Dude.

It might not surprise some of you to learn that, no A Dude’s Guide wasn’t on the front page. Most of that front page was taken up by images of one Jeffrey Lebowski, known now and forever as the Dude, played by the inimitable Jeff Bridges in full-on spacer mode. If you’ve never seen it (then you can’t be Zippy the Monkey Boy who watches this movie at least once a month), then you’re really missing out on a surreal, spacey trip through the life of a seriously left-behind loser. It’s also funnier than heck.

Anyway, type in dude to the google machine and you get some interesting images. Like this:

Who would have ever thought there was  Jeffrey Lebowski action figure? Not me, dude, that’s for sure. Especially an action figure that comes with removable White Russian, the preferred drink of the Dude.

We’ve also got this:

Obama’s got nothing on this cat.

Of course, as with all google machine image searches, there’s always the probability (not possibility, but probability) that you’ll run into something more than a little vaguely disturbing. Evidence for this assertion? Why, the following, silly dude.

With American Idol finally over, I thought I’d finally be rid of that, that, that whatever the heck thing that is. Seriously, dude needs to stop getting work done. After a while, you’ve just got to declare defeat, muster up as much dignity as you’ve still got the shreds of, and mope on home. He is long past that time.

So, off with you. To the google machine for a little fun. Go. Enjoy.
