I Can Has CNN

I don’t know why, but since I start­ed blog­ging few months back, the most pop­u­lar blog on Word­Press has been “I Can Has Cheezburg­er”. When I start­ed blog­ging, I thought it’s just an anom­aly. But, sur­pris­es of sur­pris­es, it turned out to be the No. 1 blog of all time.

I once decid­ed to check it out. All I could see was pho­tos of cats with some inno­v­a­tive clips thrown in. Now why did that make it to the top of the blogs? I don’t know. Nei­ther do I under­stand felines nor do I under­stand human beings.

So, giv­en this back­ground, can you imag­ine my sur­prise at see­ing CNN’s Polit­i­cal Tick­er as the Top Word­Press Blog? It is a wel­come change! Are homo sapi­ens final­ly giv­ing way to gram­mar and mean­ing?!

I can’t has this mean­ing!

  • I think it has to do with the fact that almost every sec­ond blog was start­ing to post cheesy pho­to­shopped pic­tures with cap­tions using the by now cliched “Teh Intrnt grmr” and link­ing back to the orig­i­nal pandora’s box that start­ed this pesti­len­tial trend

  • Duh! I sor­ta, u know, get it now! (A failed attempt to use the new lan­guage). Pandora’s box — he he he!

  • The most pop­u­lar blogs are often not the best blogs, not always. A way to check this is the most pop­u­lar posts. Half of them are not good…
    Remem­ber the world wide web audi­ence is very dif­fer­ent from our Indi­an web audi­ence. The Indi­ans who own a pc and have reg­u­lar access to the inter­net are most­ly edu­cat­ed, but in coun­tries like the U.S. and oth­ers, the world wide web audi­ence is more a cor­rect rep­re­sen­ta­tive of their pop­u­la­tion. A country’s pop­u­la­tion is a mixed one, in any coun­try. Also there are far more blogs in those countries…some of the blogs are real­ly stu­pid. Just because a per­son can write Eng­lish does not mean he writes any sense…
    Right now in India the major­i­ty of those who read blogs are either the elite or the col­lege edu­cat­ed. It makes a big difference…but I guess this will change in the future.

  • You’re right, Nita. I’m some­how glad that CNN Polit­i­cal Tick­er is show­ing up as the most pop­u­lar blog at present! Restores my faith in human­i­ty, sort of! 😉

  • Very glad to hear some­thing with at least an ounce of intel­lect has dis­placed that stu­pid cat pic site. But I’m a gram­mar geek, so any site with gram­mar as atro­cious as “the site which must not be named” is going to get two thumbs down in my book!
