Blogger Resorts to Nudity for Increase in Hit Ratings

Alright.

The reason I don’t know who ended up with the nude pictures was that it was a group situation. And I don’t mean “group home” or whatever other phrase might leap to your particular mind. It was wilderness gathering that unwittingly turned into what you might call – if you were a poetic and/or romantic person -- a convention of wood nymphs. To summarize: A bunch of women camping in an obscure wilderness area in the scorch of summer were suddenly struck with the question of who needs clothes, anyway? To which the quick and unanimous answer was: Not us!

Who has not encountered such a tableau at some point in their lives -- preferably during the more presentable years. (It’s unfortunate when things that should have been done in one’s youth are postponed until an age at which one looks foolish doing them.)

Anyway someone took a few snapshots with one of those prehistoric little boxes full of rolled up celluloid. Weeks later when we met again at some point, the photos were being passed around, but it didn’t occur to me to suggest that copies be made. It didn’t seem like a good idea at the time.

Camping? Well that explains it! I've had some very tribal camping trips myself! And by tribal, I mean a bunch of adults shedding all maturity and responsibility, and acting like a bunch of jackass teenagers...

yup, this is the post that gets me to leave this Blog, I am no prude, I AM a feminist, I am still,not amused. Bye for now. It may not be smut but it is uninteresting, to an extreme. No journalistic value whatsoever.

Geez...tough crowd lately!

I think it's important to write whatever you feel like writing about. When you start censoring yourself and worrying about a certain audience, creativity suffers, and you end up pleasing nobody.

Keep up the good work! I'm subscribing three times to make up your losses!

Oh wait...hold on a tic. I was able to scramble the letters in your word verification and make something resembling a naughty word. Maybe I will unsubsrcibe...

Yay, Jeff! My sentiments exactly! My blog is the one place where I don’t have to worry about pleasing an editor. Your triple subscription is much appreciated. (Good grief! Naughty words, indeed. Who knew the mild-mannered English-teacher would ever be accused of being so wild and woolly! Evidently I am racier than I ever dreamed.)

A glass aloft to you and Buttercup!
