Some of the best things about being a blogger are the links your readers will send to you. I can always tell when a topic or news item has gone viral because I'll get a bunch of emails about it over a number of days.

The most recent example of this phenomenon is this photo of a ninja librarian via Hawtness, (be warned, some images NSFW-ish, I think.):
