The following was auto-generated by wordpress.com and the stats disagrees slightly from the Site Stats that I normally monitor but who is really counting. Naturally I modified the wording slightly:
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

French automobile engineer, Louis Réard, should be the most famous engineer in the world since his invention, the bikini, positively transformed the lives of more men than any invention in the world, including the wheel, the sandwich loaf, and the online porn.
According to Wikipedia, Réard came up with the idea for the bikini in 1947 when he was 50, not because he was a pervert, but while he was running his mothers lingerie shop and thought women looked better in public when in their underwear. He named his contraption the Bikini after the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, a popular site for testing nuclear weapons at the time. He possibly came up with the name when he realized the bikini was capable of causing its own little nuclear explosions in secluded places.
The bikini has evolved since 1947 and is now also available in many styles and sizes – regular, small, micro, string and you-couldn’t-be-serious. Women wear the appropriate bikini depending on the weather – smaller bikinis are worn to create a hotter atmosphere.
The evolution of the bikini was not without controversy causing those with superior moral and ethical standards to object to women wearing the bikini since it caused men to feel an immoral tingly sensation and encouraged excessive public drooling.
Religious leaders have spent a considerable amount of time bad talking the bikini instead of praying, saying it makes women look naked – as if they would know a naked woman if they saw one. Because of the imagined immorality of the bikini, some ethical men do not permit their wives, and women to wear bikinis in public but this is a blessing since the wives and women of the ethical and moral are normally in poor shape and should avoid the bikini anyway.
The bikini was originally intended to be a swimsuit but now women wear bikinis while playing sports like volleyball to allow freedom of movement and to keep men glued to the TV screen. Some women even wear bikinis while playing mas in Trinidad and Tobago, ignoring the call by the religious and the scared to not show off too much of their goods in public. On the other hand, photographers are not normally religious or even moral people so encourage bikini wearing during Carnival in order to take as many bikini shots as their batteries and good sense would let them.
Many celebrities have been known to wear bikinis in public places to relive stress and attract the paparazzi. One good bikini shot in a secluded public beach with an unknown hunk can keep a celebrity in the news and the dollars for weeks.
The bikini, in 2009, looks like it is here to stay and like all living creatures, will evolve to suit its environment. It is clearly still an instrument to help the fittest survive.
The lingerie company Victoria’s Secret was named after British Queen Victoria but this fact was thankfully kept from the public for years. The company was named after the Queen since she was not prone to showing off her underwear in public and was normally secretive about its color or even if she wore any – she always had the press guessing. Women’s underwear was not for the general public in the old days but this has since changed because men have not.
Women’s underwear has come a long way since Queen
Victoria’s time and it’s no longer taboo for men to ask women about their underwear and for men to see other women wearing them; or not. Some men have developed a keen interest in the women underwear industry and have subscribed to the Victoria’s Secret catalog and website in show of support. The first Victoria’s Secret stores were opened in 1977 to encourage men to show their wives and girlfriends what sexy mannequins and sales clerks in underwear looked like. The need never disappeared.
Victoria’s Secret now has annual sales figures of over US$5 billion and though women’s underwear has been shrinking in size their sales have not. Victoria’s Secret now employs top models to parade in front of depraved men and a few women to keep interest alive. Victoria’s Secret catalogs and models are responsible for at least 80% of the happiness found in men. Beer, fried chicken, and sports are responsible for the rest.
