This Will Be the Most-Linked Post On INTERNET Within 24 Hours

Not necessarily this post; maybe Bill's post. I got it from him.

Why? Because bloggers are attention-starved narcissists who just want feedback, even if it's from a software program.

Bill's link leads to a site that will analyze your site -- your whole site, I guess -- for "readability."

My results:

Fog Readability Index: Retarded
Flesch Reading Ease: Sub-Cretinous
Flesch-Kincaid Grade: Easily comprehensible by foreigners speaking English as a second (or third) language whose vocabulary is largely limited to swear-words and stock phrases like "Where do they keep the hookers in NY anymore?"

But seriously... My God, I write almost at a 7th grade level (ALMOST! 6.96, if you want to know the truth!).

On the other hand, my 9.97 on the Fog Index puts me in the 8-10 range of "most popular novels," and almost exactly equal to Time's rating of 10. The "Flesh Reading Ease" score clocks in at 68.67, which is comfortably in the 60-70 range most authors are encouraged to write in.

So I'm doing just fine, overall.

But that 7th grade thing sort of hurts.

The truth does that sometimes.

Instapundit's A Bigger Moron Than Me Update!

His results:

Gunning Fog Index 8.64 (a point less than mine)
Flesch Reading Ease 68.93 (a tick less than mine)
Flesch-Kincaid Grade 5.63 (YESSS!!!!)

Hah! Not even three-quarters of the way through fifth grade! Moron!

Then again, his score is almost certainly deflated by those myriad one-syllable "Heh's."

My Co-Host Is An Even Bigger Moron Than I Am Update: Which sucks, because I want her to be the smart one, the Tina Fey to my Jimmy Fallon.

But it's not to be. Karol from Alarming News is almost as stupid as Instapundit:

Gunning Fog Index 8.58
Flesch Reading Ease 71.96
Flesch-Kincaid Grade 5.72

Not even sixth grade. For crying out loud.

This show's going to be a disaster.
