Following a post about a visitor spike resulting from there being the words “man eating a banana” on a photo or two at the excellent vintage photo blog Pics of Then, I have undertaken an experiment that was suggested by Christine at Naptime Writing to see what happens to visitor stats if the tags “eating a sausage” or “eating a banana” are added to a post.
Not having yet had the opportunity to visit a photobooth with a banana or a sausage, I submit for the purposes of this experiment a picture entitled “Woman Eating A …”, as the confection in question is a product only available in Australia, despite originating at an American biscuit franchise. I wouldn’t want to confuse my international readership, of course. It is a sublime chocolate slice called a peanut butter dream bar from the American cookie chain Mrs Fields. Possibly not as enticing as the aforementioned phallic food-stuffs but sufficient for the purposes of this joke.
This series of pics are the first I have taken using the “black and white” option on my local digital photobooth. I initially took them to make my sister in Dublin jealous, as Mrs Fields doesn’t operate in Ireland and the dream bar is one of her all time favourite treats. I never dreamt of the use to which it would be put, when I took them.
I will report any changes in visitor numbers in the coming week or so.
