The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming
I glanced at the statistics for this blog the other day and spotted a sudden spike in page views. Curious, I checked where these views were coming from.
Many were from Russia.
Now it could be that a recent post about Castro sparked interest. Or the Alice's Restaurant one. Or maybe some of the political ones. Perhaps someone working for Putin was checking to see if this blog contained information they could then leak to influence the U. S. election.
Yeah. I wouldn't be shocked if Democratic Party or Hillary campaign officials suddenly stepped forward and blamed me for the election results. He's part of the fictional alt-right!
Of course, I have noticed a Russian audience before. Not sure why someone from Russia would be interested in this obscure blog. Maybe they like bad haiku, or perhaps clerihews.
After all, there was that clerihew about Putin:
There are rumors that Vladimir Putin
somehow has ties to Rasputin.
So it makes sense his followers shiver
when Vlad takes a dip in a river.
Anyway, if you are a Russian page viewer/reader, in the spirit of the season I say:
Pax et bonum
