It is way OTT. You know you've made it as an Internet phenomenon when the Wall Street Journal writes you up in their "Time Wasters" section, here (might require the subscription).

Mr Purcell says that his blog attracts "especially those not in that first circle of nerd-dom." His blog apparently has many devoted fans: "A lot of British people, a lot of Spanish people, people from all over Europe," he says. "I think it goes to show you that Japanese weirdness really resonates around the globe."

That's right: Japanese weirdness.
