"They're looking for what?"


I posted last month on the number of web searches that find their way to this blog as a result of looking for content that is, by Underachievement's own standards, a bit racey. There have been people looking for info on Kira Eggers, 'Glimpse-It', a British website with a strong focus on micturation (and since that last post, the number of people happening upon the blog using that search has increased, possibly triggering deadly paranoia in those poor thirsty souls). And then there is the perennial demand for pictures of Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc in his birthday suit. Naturally, Seanachie is no longer shocked by any of this, though he was taken aback yesterday by a request for nude photos of Northern Ireland manager - and new Fulham caretaker boss - Lawrie Sanchez. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, there was nothing of that sort that remained after Lawrie's brief tenure in charge as Sligo Rovers manager ten years ago, a time when Lawrie's physique might have been more worthy of such close scrutiny. I will endeavour to supply the goods for that user of a Dutch-language version of Internet Explorer based in Madrid.

Seán Baite wrote an article for Dublin Opinion a while back about the subject of that painting ‘L’Origine du Monde’by Gustave Courbet. I added an image showing the painting, which only reveals the lower half of Joanna Heffernan, and for some reason we’ve been recently been getting a lot of searches for it.

I’ll forward you the link to the article, so you can see what I’m talking about. I don’t think I should add it here.

I do remember Seán Báite's piece a few months back, but thanks for jogging my memory. At least, Courbet is as much art and smut...

Oops, problem down at the typing pool: I meant, of course, "as much art as smut"...

Dario Sanchez said...

I'm sure Mr. Sanchez would be happy to oblige with such a request.

The Dutch enjoy smoking stuff anyway ...

Don't think he's exacly naked in any of them, but the Guardian's footie website have obligingly put up a gallery of said Lawrie (heavily Photoshopped) this week. Mebbe the dutch-speaking sicko in Madrid will find his bonheur in this lot :

Point him towards the 'Lawrie Driver' one - pretty grotesque...
