Photocopied Bottoms


Back in the spring I entered a blog post about the FTC getting involved with photocopier hard drive privacy issues. The article started off saying: “Those photocopies of your bottom, which you thought would be an original and funny statement of the contents of your soul during the office Christmas party, have started to worry the US Federal Trade Commission.”

So I thought I would add a photo of someone’s photocopied butt to make the story more interesting. I found a picture of a photocopied butt on the Internet and used that for my blog post.

I started to get hits from search engines for photocopied butt, photocopied bottom, etc, and people were clicking on that image to copy it and use it.

I was really puzzled why I was getting so many hits for that photo. So I created a new blog entry, just before Christmas, and had a YouTube video on there, where a heavy man tries to photocopy his butt and the glass on the copier broke, no doubt injuring him, it was caught on an office security camera. Then I really started to get hits for that photo of a photocopied butt.

Now for the record, I have never photocopied my butt, and I fail to realize why it is so funny. I do have a sense of humor, but a photo or scan of someone’s butt? Why do people do that? Are they rebelling against the corporate environment?

Can anyone help me out? I am very curious why I get so many hits every day for that photo. Please leave a comment why you think people photocopy their butts and why it’s funny. Also why are people on the Net searching for photocopied butt photos? This is no joke, I want to get to the bottom of this. No pun intended.

  1. Well, I guess some find it funny to photocopy their butts because they will be able to post it. And their posted butts would leave others to imagine what their faces look like based on their posted photocopied butts.

    I’m usually fond of taking candid shots using covert cameras. But come to think of it, how would it be like if i take a photocopy of my own butt?

  2. People in offices are so bored i tell ya, its fun because its risky and you can email it to your collegue as a joke, its kinda like giving someone a browneye online
