inspiring kitties open thread self-promotion

100,000 Comments! For real.

Time for a little Man Boobz Dance Party: Yesterday, this little blog logged its 100,000th comment. Not page view, comment. (The number of page views is a bit over 2.5 million.) And that’s not even counting the forum.

So let’s have a big round of applause for all the Man Boobz commenters. I couldn’t have done it without you folks! Seriously, since you were the ones writing the comments. I thank you all, trolls and humans alike!

With a typical comment being about 100 words or so (I looked at samples of comments in several different threads and averaged, then rounded it off to a nice simple number), that means you guys have generated more than 10 million words of commentary.

10 freakin million. That’s more than nine times the length of the entire Harry Potter series (1,084,170 words), and almost 7 times the length of Proust’s A la Receherche du Temps Perdu.

If each of these words were a kitty, that would be more kitties than the entire cat population of France.

If each of these words-turned-into-kitties were then turned into a penguin, you’d have more than the entire penguin population of Antarctica.

To celebrate, here’s a video of a cat dressed in a penguin costume, eating fish, a food beloved by both kitties and penguins.

Oh, no! You put up a picture of a Soviet bill! You commie! It’s all a communist conspiracy! Just wait till NWO gets here.

Half of those 100,000 comments are probably from NWO.

Congrats! I wish all of the NWAs would magically turn into kitties. Then at least they would be cute, cuddly assholes. (Who would be doomed to spend the rest of their miserable lives sleeping with childless, never-married middle-aged women…LOL!)

You mean I could have been reading Remembrance of Things Past rather than reading Owly’s ill-informed rants, and actually be somewhat smarter for my time rather than regressing? Man. I need to reconsider my priorities.

But seriously. Manboobz is at least twice as awesome as it would otherwise be with all the cool people commenting here. I love reading the comments and, in the strange way that only the Internet allows, getting to know the people who post here. Including you, MRAL.

don’t think it’s even worth 100,000 VND (about 5 USD) let alone 100,000 RUB , just a piss on the ocean really, but “monitoring and mocking” MRA’s David, but don’t give up your day job!

Let’s all thanks the troll, it would have never been possible without their permanent derailing and hilarious and/or offensive statement.

Meowicus, I reckon reading Manboobz has left me smarter than attempting to read literature would. ๐Ÿ™‚

There are so many people here who know what they’re talking about, and the info comes in the form of short comments, in a conversation, and the trolls are so dense that experts have to go right back to basics to explain things. (even if I still can’t follow conversations on economics or libertarianism)

The only thing I have to work out is whether proteins are complex strings of amino acids, or an element in the war on Christmas. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Magpie – The only thing I have to work out is whether proteins are complex strings of amino acids, or an element in the war on Christmas. ‘

IT DEPENDS ON WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE LIVING PROTEINS..

Also on whether they are made by the DeNovo company XD

Nothing is neutral in the war on Xmas. Even amino acids. Especially amino acids.

PS. There is actually no known way to actually follow conversations about libertarianism. Shhh, it’s a secret. Though not a really well kept one if you’ve ever tried to follow conversations about libertarianism. :p

Zhinxy, does that mean, according to your PS, that NWO really is a libertarian? No one can follow his conversations!

(And why can’t political movements be easier to spell?)

zhinxy
8 years ago

no no, there are subtle distinctions between a true libertarian’s unfollowability and a not-true one. It’s something you have to get a feel for. Promise. XD (Although, he insists I’m pretending and I’m not a real one, not that I’m like, a BAD one, but that I’m literally pretending.. So I don’t know. That’s probably what he’d expect me to say. ..)

libertarianism is not recognized by wordpress comment spell checker, because it hates freedom, though. THAT MUCH I KNOW! That red line under libertarianism is communism, it is…

Is it true, though, that anarchists don’t care how you spell it? ๐Ÿ™‚

@Quackers: Yeah, Youtube is generally a cesspool of racism, sexism and asshattery. It’s the perfect home for MRAs.

Also, this might be common knowledge to everyone except me, but I just discovered that Paul Elam’s Youtube username is TheHappyMisogynist. Yep…
