It’s a strange web indeed

Looking through the referrer logs for this site, came to the realization that this site is the second hit on Yahoo! search for “picture of a gorilla taking a dump”. Guess there just aren’t that many sites out there for people with somewhat unusual tastes in entertainment. Or something.

BTW, what is up with all the searches for “coupling subtitles?” There’s been a constant stream of searches for that ever since I lamented the hare-brained scheme of taking what is arguably one of the funniest sitcoms evar and reshooting it line for line in the States with much worse actors for no particular reason apart from naked greed.
