TheDirty.com is an immensely popular blog (see traffic numbers at bottom of this post) that talks trash about everyone, but mostly focuses on people with ridiculous MySpace profiles and overblown self images. I have TheDirty.com set up in my Google Reader along with a couple dozen other sites for regular reading (TechCrunch.com, MattCutts.com, SearchEngineWatch.com, etc are there). Imagine my surprise when I went to look at TheDirty.com today and saw familiar faces staring back! The Robinett twins are good guys, but they do have some rather silly looking photos and theDirty.com has gotten ahold of some and put the Robinett twins on his blog. My comments are in italics as usual.
Below is Nik (thedirty.com’s author) post from today (June 11, 2008):
Well it looks like the GWINS are still batting for the Gays. Seattle should be proud! They only build abs like that for infomercials. You canâ€™t really see it, because of his serious deep thought pose in a make believe jungle of life, but one of the Gwins is sitting on a large wood log like a professional. Probably dreaming about a nice spray tan session with his brother.
So why do you call them GWINS?:
TheDirty.com then links to two other posts that he has done on the twins below this most recent one… the other posts are pretty awful too:

The DIRTY ARMY has knighted these two DOUCHE BAGSâ€¦ from this day hence forth the twins will be named:
â€œGWINSâ€ (Gay Twins)
I guess they are at least sort of famous now, right? Here is the first post Nik did:
EMAIL: nik- I donâ€™t know if youâ€™ve settled on name for the mini frogs from seattle but this might give some more ideas. the twin mini frogs dated another set of twins. the girls think they are hot sh*t because they lost a whole bunch of weight (wonder why?) and started caking on the mac make up and getting attention from d-bags. the girls actually lived down in scottsdale for awhile last year. iâ€™m just glad they broke up before they could reproduce.
Emailer forget about those girlsâ€¦ we have more important issues to discuss. Here are the Frog Sperm twins top 5 names for the DIRTY ARMY to choose from. (Your Vote counts, just look at Obama.)
1) Left Nut & Right Nut
2) Ambiguously Gay Duo
3) Number 2â€™s
4) Call them the Gwins (Gay Twins)
5) Double Bent Twins
Which one has your vote DIRTY ARMY?- nik
I am just curious as to who sent them in… It sounds like someone from Scottsdale, AZ. I know that a lot of readers of thedirty.com are sad, fat nerds who troll myspace.com searching for people to burn, so it could be someone completely random.
So are you wondering how many people read thedirty.com each day? Let me show you a traffic comparison between my site and thedirty.com from Alexa (the tiny bump at the bottom was from when I was getting 4,000 unique visitors every day… now I get “only” 1,000 visitors every day):
According to my best estimates, theDirty.com receives over 260,000 unique visitors each day! I feel kind of bad for the Robinett twins now. They are good guys and are pretty down to earth and fun to hang out with. I guess when you do modeling though you have to take the good with the bad… some people will get jealous and try to pick you apart. Hopefully the twins won’t let their newfound fame go to their heads 😉
