Why Is "Folkskunde vs. The Moffatts" So Popular?

My January 10 article entitled "Folkskunde vs. The Moffatts" has proven to be the single most popular item on this blog. (No, really, it has. I'm baffled, too.) In the past few days, it has attracted more than 70% of new visitors here. These readers seem to be most interested in the latter-day adventures of Dave Moffatt.

Consequently, I've made some updates to the article, which you can read here.

By the way, I ran into Jacob Wolf of Folkskunde last night at Live Arts' opening night for Steve Martin's The Underpants and mentioned the popularity of the article to him. He seemed both surprised and pleased.

Hey, my most popular post last year applied Nietzschean philosophy to zombie movies. There's no way to predict what blog readers will respond to -- though a good rule of thumb is, the geekier and/or siller the better. The beauty of blogs is that a piece you considered nothing but a silly bagatelle can become your greatest hit.
