The Bee Gees

More weird little internet thingies today. Only yesterday, in fact, I learned that I can do better on a trivia quiz than a monkey!

I like this one because all I had to do was type in my URL and it does the rest, based on incoming links measured by Technorati. B-list certainly isn't bad. I do sort of wish they had some color options, though. Pink doesn't exactly go with the color scheme around here.

And I am apparently quite safe for children as well. I did this one a few days ago and was designated PG because I used the word "punch." I'm pretty sure I used it in the non-hitting sense, but they don't seem to have a contextual aspect to their ratings, much like the actual MPAA. Now, though, it found only a single use of the word "death," and granted me an all-ages pass. How "death" is preferable to "punch" beats me. My guess is also that it only checks the first page of the site, as I know I have used the word "fuck" a couple of times, in my Nano fiction excerpts alone. I believe I had a character say that something "rocks like a motherfucker," and another character echo that phrase in benign agreement. So tell all the kids to come on by the Moon Topples Big-Fun Family Blog.





UPDATE: Tell the kids to stay away after all. I guess these things can change pretty quick once you start dropping the F-bomb.

Pretty freakin' funny, Mr. Mean Tippler. If you do a post about this post, then perhaps it'll take you to an "R" rating.

Hope all is well with you. Please back up your glorious work.

*laughs*
Brilliant piece of marketing, I think, to upgrade your rating.

The Moon Topples said...

GT: Sorry for your data loss. I back up pretty regularly, so hopefully will not share your awful fate.

Leatherdy: Thanks. I knew I could do it!

I love the pink B-list symobol. I am thinking about having it put onto a t-shirt. If you wore one too, then we'd match ;-)

Verilion said...

My blog was rated restricted (Yipee) and D list ) : I'll just slope away now and not taint your b list blogebrity...

Ces said...

Congratulations. The pink looks like candy. Of course once you start swearing in your blogs even some adults will go away :-) I have to try some of these links. Thanks for stopping by. I have been busy drawing as you can see. :-)

The Moon Topples said...

Caroline: Can't we match some other way? Is there no middle ground?

Ver: Aww, don't feel cowed by my tremendous fame and influence. I still remember all the little people.

Ces: Don't be scared. I really don't swear a lot on here. In this instance, I needed to in order to make the joke work, though.

Hahahahaha!!! I got a PG for one use of 'breast' (sigh...)

The Moon Topples said...

Zinnia: Well, maybe you should tone the smut down a bit if you want to be more family-friendly?

Jon M said...

I got C list and it's still pink which is a bit too Barbie looking really. I'm also quite General but I wanted a 'Random' rating cos that seems like more fun!

The Moon Topples said...

Jon: The B-list award comes with a flight attendant outfit and Dream Car! What do you get at C?

Was "random" really one of the options? I would have loved to get that one.

Minx said...

Maybe we should make up our own ratings?

M - Mild

GF - Grandma friendly

MS - mild smut

MYM - mind yer mouth

SC - slight cringe (in front of parents)

GTKON - get the kids out now

NSFA - not suitable for anyone (who hasn't lived a bit)

The Moon Topples said...

Minx: I see no fault in your ratings system, on which you have obviously invested a lot of your time. So...which rating am I?

Jon M said...

Sorry Maht, I made Random up...kind of ...randomly. I wouldn't like to tell you what you get with a C...

Ian said...

what baffles me is how your "Moon Toppless" entry didn't pull more attention.

The Moon Topples said...

Jon: Aww c'mon. What do you get? Now I really want to know. I bet it's better than the B list prize, isn't it?

Ian: I think it only read the front page, which would be just the last week or so.
