Pajamas Media claims that the news that a French woman has undergone a partial face transplant is causing "a lot of rubbernecking on [sic] the blogosphere".

To support this claim, they provide a whopping four links, one of which goes to a blog called "Blogywood," whose entire post about the operation goes like this:

Let's hope that many French will follow her example

Puerile French-bashing aside, what's especially interesting about "Blogywood" is its rather, um, unconventional selection of posts and links. In fact, it wouldn't be too inaccurate to label it a "sex blog." Or at least an "adult blog." Elsewhere on the current front page, you can find links to, among other things, a man pretending to barbecue his penis. And lots and lots of boobies.

Not that there's anything wrong with that (the boobies, I mean, not the penis-barbecuing, which is very wrong indeed), but if Pajamas Media is trying to adopt a sober, grown-up approach to its mission of promoting "The Blogosphere," this might not be quite the way to do it.

Unless they want to become known as "BJ Media."

Thanks for yr post & the Luke Ford link to the other site. That comment thread (& his post about PJM) is hilarious! I'd heard about PJM's launch & tried to ignore. But if I'd known there was so much levity involved in watching their gradual demise, I would've paid more attention.
