I've noticed something similar to this phenomenon popping up in the American blogosphere. Particularly in the blogs of local sports columnists or personalities. Paul Dougherty's "Daily Line" blog at the Cincinnati Enquirer, for instance, usually ends with a link to such a picture, in a segment he often calls "shamelessly jacking up the blog numbers". Does that sound like something that should be added here?
