So I checked that internet sensation Allison Stokke today. I got over a million hits on Google. Wow, wtf. It’s only been about a month since she was discovered by the sports blog WithLeather. For people who don’t read that, it’s a very popular sports blog filled with satire and good commentary on all kinds of sports. So anyway, Allison Stokke is a relatively normal athletic senior in high school getting a search statistics graph that looks like Mount Everest. Well I guess it helps if you have a great body and a nice face for an athlete…and that you can break national records…and that you’re from California.
Allison and her dad are somewhat upset about all this strange fame, mostly because something like 98% of searches for her are by males…many of them more than twice her senior, and many of them who freak me out more than her.
Allison Stokke might be Wonder Woman. If she can clear 14 feet, how long before she starts flying?
The following pictures are from WithLeather and/or from sports photographers. The first picture is the one that started the searching frenzy on Google.
