I wonder myself

Deodan left this comment on my recent potato chip post:

Which is stranger: That you made a 2-minute video of yourself opening and eating a bag of chips, or that I watched it?


The YouTubes phenomenon is strange, Deodan. Case in point: my Female Ejaculation effort, which has garnered over 2.6 million views (yes, you read that right--2.6 MILLION views). I am stunned at this fact. I only made the silly thing as fodder for this blog. But there you have it: Erin O'Brien's first million.

Nice, huh?

I used to leave every comment up except for the spam. Eventually, I enabled comment moderation and now I delete the moronic insults. There are new comments almost every day. Most are pretty predictable, but what amazes me is how many people complain about the fact that I made the video and that they watched it. Unlike Deodan, they render themselves completely blameless in the transaction. As if I made them watch it ala the Ludovico Technique of A Clockwork Orange fame.

So no, Deodan, I don't know which is stranger. All I can do is offer you one final note: the Female Ejaculation YouTube resulted in this amazing story as well.

I am a fan of female ejaculation in all of its forms.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
I'm pro female ejaculation.
Bring it on.

i never understand the folks who take the time to comment and complain, as if you're somehow forcing them to stick around & read/ watch videos.

so they are bored with you, and keep coming back, then take time to comment?

genius!

How you got over a million hits with a lame title like "Female Ejaculation" and I only got twenty with my, "A Long-Winded Boring-Assed Analysis of Scalia's Latest Dissenting Opinion" is beyond me.

My ass wiping video only has around 100 views.I am find comfort in this.As for you potato chip post, well I cannot get enough of it! I've set it to continuous play. I even have it up and running full time 24/7 at work.

Heck, I'd watch Erin O'Brien read the label on a package of gum.

Wait. Have I already done that? Hmm. Carry on.

It's you that makes us watch, Erin. I've watched my friends and family eating chips and I must say, it ain't Youtube-worthy.

Wor; that's a flashback to the days when I wondered about whether a female could enjoy sex.
