Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

No lie: While walking back to work today with my lunch, I saw this dude at the corner of 2nd Avenue South and 3rd Street (downtown St. Pete) who looked like a dead ringer for Mikey Teutul from “American Chopper”.

Well, actually, this guy seemed taller. But otherwise, just like idiot Mikey (the real article pictured above).

It’s a strange era we live in when looking like Mikey is actually something to shoot for.

Incidentally, the Teutuls’ Orange County Chopper shop is right down the road from where I grew up. My cousin Bill claims to know somebody who knows somebody who was a business partner with big-scary Paul Sr., just before the TV show came around.

Why do I find Konstantin Dlutskiy’s Russian Marketing Blog so oddly compelling?

Is it the lamentation of the glory that once was post-Soviet McDonald’s in Moscow?

Nah, couldn’t be. I think it’s the question of whether vobla or dried squid make the better beer snack.

Imagine if the Iron Curtain never came down…

Do I know how to pick ‘em, or what? My post on Jill Wagner, spokeswoman on those Mercury car commercials, has been bringing in a steady stream of visitors.

Then today, Gawker Media’s Jalopnik linked to the post.


I’m getting mad hits right now; probably top off at a thousand for the day. Chingy-ching, baby. (Go Adsense.) I need to curry favor from Gawker blogs more often…

Can’t say I blame Jalopnik nor his readers. Wagner’s got an engaging screen presence. I don’t give a hoot about cars in general, and she sure grabbed my attention.
