I have noticed for a while that readership of this site has been dropping slightly.
I’m not complaining, simply because complaining [as I have discovered over a long and fun-filled life] does fuck all good.
The drop is ever so slight. Look at the figures for the past few months and you wouldn’t notice anything. Look at them over the course of a year and there it is – a weensy drop.
It took me a long while [about forty five seconds] to discover the cause of this. Americans aren’t dropping by any more. They used to be top of the pile, followed by the U.K. with Ireland in a pathetic third place. Things have changed now. My most avid readers are the U.K. mob, with Ireland finally creeping up the league to second place, with the U.S. languishing in third spot.
So where have the Americans gone?
I used to write a lot about the Americans. They were a rich source of subjects, particularly when they had The World’s Most Idiotic President. Dubya may have been insane, but he was a fucking fantastic source of material. Then along came O’Bama whose only claim to fame is that he is the only black president ever to hail from Moneygall. He has turned out to be as dull as ditch-water, and is frankly quite boring. He doesn’t even invade countries on a whim like his predecessor. In fact he rarely makes the news over here these days unless he’s whinging about the Euro.
Of course there are some who continue to keep the Bar Strangled Spanner alive and well on my comments [Hiya, tt] but it’s the non-commenting readers who have vanished. Where have they all gone? Have they resigned themselves to a life of illiteracy and given up on my spelling lessons?
Fuckit but I’m even prepared to admit to one major mistake I made about America.
I used to rip the piss out of them for their Right to Bear Arms.
I was wrong. They are right.
I just wish that freedom extended to Europe.
