Skid Mark Brief Safe — My most popular post EVER


What this says about my readership I really would rather not think about.

The Skid Mark Brief Safe post appeared on January 19, 2007.

It was quickly picked up by Boing Boing, at the time the über-blog of coolness, before spreading itself across the internets.

Put bookofjoe into the Google search box and up comes that post on the first page, #2 of 991,000 results (below).


Back in 2007 you could pick one up for $39.95.

Amazon carries it but alas, it's currently out of stock.

The most recent Amazon review is dated January 16, 2023, six days ago (5 Stars BTW) so you just need to be patient and revisit the site occasionally to see if your shi...p has come in.


Otherwise you're gonna have to make your own.

No — I refuse to pander and make a video.

There are limits, even for me.

If you're not happy with your results... oh stop

But wait — there's more! (we were afraid of that...)

This post appears here exactly three (3) days after the fifteenth (15th) anniversary of its January 19, 2007 debut.


I think not.

Below, the seventeen (17) comments on the original post, the last of which appeared over two-and-a-half (2.5) years later, on October 29, 2009.

Please refer to my comment in response to Ms. Radoo's comment/suggestion.

As always, your wish is my demand.

So somebody had 6 pair they'd "let go" for $1 apiece....shouldn't they be paying somebody to take them away?

I'm still wondering if Richard Widmark was ever called Richard Skidmark, some things never change

A reasonable request.

Your wish is my demand.

Here is your heads-up:

It will be reposted on January 19, 2037, its 30-year anniversary.

Be here.

Ugh. Maybe send out a heads-up before you post that again? :*~
