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.

(A pipe dream, but similar to well-wishes I share with rape crisis workers )

And thanks for posting that video. Ireally needed that. I was recently having a back and forth with several MRAs on Youtube (because I’m a glutton for punishment) and was feeling on edge even off the computer.

@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…

Funny, he doesn’t seem particularly happy to me.

But he certainly does seem like a misogynist.
