Me Talk Simply One Day: Part 1

The OverDrone came across this very slick readability test and ran his own site through it. According to Wikipedia the average American reads at an eighth grade level so ideally, to garner the largest audience, writing should be readable by a Junior High schooler.
Unfortunately The OverDrone scored above that, limiting my market share. The OverDrone has entered url's from other sites so as to place myself and the others. The results are below beginnning with the Elementary School level.
cash advance
Although The OverDrone entered many url's he was unable to find one which scored below this so this seems to be the lower limit. If anyone knows of a site which reads at a pre-school or Kindergarten level please post it in the comments.
The popular site I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER? is readable by 1st through 5th graders. As is LOLTheist, which may offend some due to it's religious content. SpaceSick is a blog which contains original art, music and a new cartoon. It too is readable by Elementary schoolers.
Thus ends part one of The OverDrone's blog readability special investigation.

P.S. Whatever your blog's readability , why don't you post it in the comments.
