Farks Far and Wide

Part of my new relationship with MailChimp is an integration with their Analytics360 plugin, which allows me to see traffic to my website in all kinds of easy-to-read formats. The referring link section is very extensive and a little browsing led me to discover just how much legs my goofy Photoshops have had. I wondered, for instance, why I was getting so many views of Cheetah Horse. A quick Google search revealed that if you google the words “cheetah horse” my image comes up first. My image of an exterminator getting rid of the locusts of the Apocolypse is being used in a blog about fixing computer bugs. And my Denny’s sign is in use, well, just about everywhere. The time I shopped a friend into a lineup of the Ghostbusters cast is illustrating a blog entry about Ghostbusters 3, which leads me to wonder if people are always aware that these are not real. My apologies to Denny’s.

Beefy Home Inspector

The home inspector turned out to be a young guy who was impossibly buff. He went through the process very meticulously, and he was initially disappointed that there was no roof access. Not to be deterred, he propped the ladder against the wall, hung onto an open window and swung himself up there. Home inspection is not for the faint of heart. We set a record yesterday for traffic to our website and that’s super encouraging. Lots of compliments on the bigger size and the color. It’s been a week since launch and I finally took the time out to put a simple banner up. I know, it’s not much. I wasn’t sure what to advertise, so I thought mentioning Maridee’s MySpace page would be as good as anything else. Some of my Farks have made the rounds enough on MySpace that it’s fitting to take credit for them somewhere. Who would have thought that many people would get excited about the Burger King in bed with the Quaker Oats guy, that took me maybe ten minutes to make. And frankly it seemed like an obvious joke at the time. Far be it from me though to criticize if it makes people happy. Laughter is really what it’s all about you know, what do I care if it’s obvious.

Farking Good Time

I ended up signing back up for Fark because a couple of my goofy Photoshops have been making their way all over the internet. My “Burger King vs. the Quaker Oats Guy” in particular has been floating all over random forums, and that’s led people to some of my other ones, landing them on a few MySpace pages as well. I don’t know why. I do think some of them are pretty funny.
