10,000

Unless you people start reading at a much slower pace, then this blog will reach 10,000 visitors over the weekend. At least since I put up the site meter, anyway. So, if you come on and happen to see you are the 10,000 visitor (check the Site Meter over there...no, there...right, that's it) , let me know in the comments, you might win a prize.*

* There is no prize

*There is no prize

LOL! No fair!

That reminds me of the "Simpsons" episode where Krusty gets threatened with cancellation, and goes on the air offering kids a "free" $40 check to watch his show. Then an announcer comes on and speed-reads a voiceover: "Checks will not be honored."

The prize is just the opportunity to visit your site and take part in such a monentous occasion.

no prize? asshole

if i refresh enough times can i get the Non-Prize?

beakerkin said...

I never post on the site meter. I just find it to be a filler post.

I have been busy up in VT.

John Howard said...

I do post on the Site Meter, because I like to, filler or not.

Stop whining about the lack of prizes, everyone, or I'm going to have to get some new commentors.

My blog is nothing but filler.

Perhaps I will do a 'Sitemeter post' soon...I probably have some nice round number coming up.

Oh yeah, and put me down for one of these too.

John Howard said...

I think you should do a site meter post, but wait until after I get my 10000th visitor, instead of trying to ruin it for me like you did my 5000th.

I think I deserve a prize since at least 8,000 of those hits are mine. And I don't mean traffic I've driven here - I mean just my own personal visits. This site is heroin for sarcasm junkies, and I jones bad ever since Seinfeld went off the air.

(How '90s.)

9,952. Not good enough. I'm just going to have to keep coming back until I hit the 10000.

The Disgruntled Chemist said...

Ha ha, yeah, that wasn't very cool of me. Oh well, take solace that you now get about twice the number of readers per day that I do.

Finally, people are starting to realize that this is, in fact, the best blog on the internets.

sumo said...

9,973 here. John you are really going to have to consider investing in some sort of reward system. Seriously. You just can't keep on dangling these little jems over our heads and then just drop the bomb (so to speak) on us. Even if it's an occasional picture of you or something! Something!

John Howard said...

Shakes, I don't know how many times you've been here, but I don't think you're far off on the number if I counted everyone that was referred from you. Seinfeld is great, I don't think this site can fill even a tiny percentage of the void left by it. The best thing I've found for that is Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Chemist, I can't be getting too many more than you, since I was at 5000 when you were at 10000, and now I'm at 10000 and you're near 15000. Anyway, any traffic boosts I get directly correlate to when one of my posts is linked at Shakespeare's Sister, so I think it probably says more about that blog than about my own.

Oldwhitelady, you can do that, but don't tell me that's what you're doing.

sumo, you're right, I've decided there will be a prize, so if you're number 10000, just go wait by the door and something will be delivered shortly.

The Disgruntled Chemist said...

Hey, it was me! The advantage to getting up at the ass-crack of dawn to watch the Tour: I beat the daily deluge of visitors.

I'll be waiting by the door for my 'prize'.

sumo said...

Well...I'm 10,024 so I guess that means I don't get that prize by the damn door! Do you know who the lucky recipient is btw?

John Howard said...

Congratulations, Chemist. Your prize will be delivered 6-8 weeks after verification of your visit is completed. The verification process usually takes one to several years.

sumo, apparently it was Chemist, but he could be lying, so it has to be verified.

Chemist

Good to see you but no your blog is not filler except for the picture blogging bit. You generally posts slogans and links to stories around your theme slogans. That is your style and every blog has one.

I do not do site meter posts or picture filler. If it works for you
so be it. The intelligence required to post the president is a pussy and I boffed Ann Coulter in the tail is beyond question.

I thought you might say that, John. You may be sneaky, but I'm sneakier.

I got your verification right here.

Ha!

John Howard said...

Chemist, I appreciate your input into the verification process, and itwill be noted, however, obviously that image could be easily forged, so it will not be sufficient for the official verification. We appreciate your patience.

John Howard said...

I boffed Ann Coulter in the tail

Actually beakerkin, I believe it was "I fucked Ann Coulter in the ass, hard." And I thought it was brilliant.

sumo said...

So did I! It was some of the best sex I'd ever witnessed in a literary sense.
