Photocopied Bottoms
February 2, 2011

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.
