Condition of Mitre Unknown
My experiment in using titular alliteration (if you’ll pardon the expression) in order to boost visits and reads ended in abysmal failure. Readership actually dropped. I can only assume that means people are very antipathetic towards alliteration, and possibly all forms of verbal trickery, up to and including onomatopoeia. Bang! There .. I said it. I went there.
Anyway, in a new experiment to boost readership and views (all in the name of science, of course), I am taking a new tack. That is, I plan to take a page out of the National Enquirer’s playbook and go with eye-catching, lurid, outrageous titles. The downside, of course, is that the body of the post will having nothing at all to do with the title. But you know, no system is perfect. I mean, just look at the solar system. It is completely riddled with flaws. That whole Pluto-isn’t-a-planet thing … what a debacle! I am pretty sure heads rolled at the Department of Planetary Nomenclature. Or, if not heads, certainly eyes did!
To prevent panic among curling enthusiasts, I should point out that the Pope did not actually break his clavicle whilst curling since he was primarily a sweeper. I’ll keep you informed on breaking news regarding his mitre.
