Can I Fool the Blogger Ad Snoop?

My blog has a problem, which means that I have a problem. Ever since I posted S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g T-h-i-n-g-s, my blog has been plagued with embarrassing Blogger ads, specifically s-i-n-e-p (first word) r-e-h-c-t-e-r-t-s (second word). I reversed the letters in the hopes that the ad snoop can't detect it. I am a little abashed that s-i-n-e-p r-e-h-c-t-e-r-t-s keeps appearing. I can't seem to get rid of it. If I look at some of my other posts, sometimes the ad changes, but when I go back to my current post, s-i-n-e-p r-e-h-c-t-e-r-t-s is still there. It's rather irritating. Furthermore, I have no use for this type of apparatus, nor do I even know what it looks like, and I don't want to know either! I prefer to bury my head in the sand on this one.

So, I half buried my head in the sand, and went surfing. I found the following. At Steve's blog,, you can actually bid for one of the apparatus things, if you want to.

Then, I found the following little scenario between Chris Knight (played by Val Kilmer) *swoon* and Mitch (played by Gabriel Jarret)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Chris Knight: You didn't touch anything, did you?
Mitch: No.
Chris Knight: Good. Because all of my filth is arranged in alphabetical order. This, for instance, is under 'H' for "toy.
Mitch: What is it?
Chris Knight: It's a penis stretcher. Do you want to try it?
Mitch: No.
Chris Knight: I'm just kidding. It's yet another in a long series of diversions in an attempt to avoid responsibility.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Small diversion there, but worth it for Val Kilmer. Where was I?

Right, my other tactic is to plant some not-so-subtle words, like "eBay" or "Jaguar", and see what happens. I really wouldn't mind having "Jaguar" show up as an ad, in fact that would be cool. What if I put "snowbird" in my post? Hmmmm.

And, though I have only been blogging for a short time, I have become accustomed to including a cute little clipart or picture relating to my post.

Val and Gabriel will have to suffice. *sigh*.

I believe there were sinep stretzcherz in Deuce Bigalow, European somethingstupid, a movie which you shouldn't bother watching, but which I have caught snippets of because the people I live with think it's hilarious.

LOL!!! That's so darn funny! I came here to ask a favor of you and got caught up in your struggle with the penis ad.

So.. on to the favor. Do you use IE? I've been having an awful time getting things to show up using MY IE. Now, we're wondering if it's just because me & hubby have the beta IE? When you view my blog, and if you use IE, would you let me know if everything shows up?

I spent all day yesterday tearing down page elements on my sidebar, even took them ALL down at one point and still can't find the culprit. GIANT UGH!

P.S. Love the avatar!

Hm! I've only had one of those curious link thingies come up after I've posted... and it was the cleanin post. Some cleaning service posted a link there. It was strange.

One day I'll post about the weird keyword searches that find my blog... you understand, with the teabag and all...

jmai - it's very odd....maybe it's cached somewhere, because if I look at the current post, the ad is different. If your test works, let me know. Thx and have a good one.
