A Little Competition

So here’s this idea I had that hopefully will spark a bit of a war… okay, firefight or skirmish… maybe just something that’s the equivalent of two chicks in spandex slap-fighting in a Wal-Mart parking lot over the last fried chicken wing.  Dunno.

My idea was to post my top commenters…

Be afraid, Erickson!

And then see who wants to unseat Sir John of Erickson from his hyperactive commentarial throne.


Have at it, all y’all… which is the plural form of “y’all.”


Update: 0730 —– Whiteladyinthehood makes a bold early move, notching up to 49.

Update: 1030 —– Jamie clicks up two, as does Benzeknees… nothing heard from J.E.

Update: 1246 —– Guapo adds a click and bets on Whiteladyinthehood; Rants eats lunch.

Update: 1445 —– Benzeknees rejoins the melee; Rants celebrates breaking past 88,000 hits.

Update: 1623 —– Erickson 84, Benzeknees 67, Rants – beer.

Update: 1800 —– Apparently a break in the action for dinner; Rants orders pizza.

Update: 1924 —– In a late surge, Whiteladyinthehood streaks closer to Benzeknees.


Okay, I’m stopping now.  I have to pack to head to Mama Rants’ house…

  1. Wait, I thought Mr. Erickson was taking a “break”, and he is still your top commenter? The rest of us have no chance!! If not for that damned job, and unholy commute, and well, the need for personal hygiene and the occasional foray into housework (okay, okay – rather infrequent foray into housework) I could spend my life commenting on blogs. If only it paid better…

    I KNEW I had to be in the top 5! heehee! I would have to give you 50 comments today…dammit… I have to work 10 hrs…and there is an ice storm coming that will probably take out my power for a week…and I have no wood left, so I’m probably going to freeze to death or my dogs may eat me…dammit

    How about we have a contest on who can annoy you the most today? I bet I would win that one!

  5. Firefight or skirmish, my choice is skirmish because I believe the only people that would use the term “firefight” are those that tend to exaggerate allot and make all situations much more hostile and spectacular than they really are.

  6. It can’t be done. John is an enigma.

  7. This is just like the stupid lottery. You don’t stand a chance of winning, but you buy the silly ticket anyway.

  8. My money is on whitelady.

  9. This all started for me when I commented on your site, but I usually limited it to one comment per post. Now that I’ve got my own garden-patch of WordPress, and have my own crop of commenters to tend, I seem to have slacked off a bit. Often, by the time I view your (or others’) site, all the good stuff has been said. With even less to do than the famous John E. I’m also less loquacious. Great post idea. I’ll never win the “competition”, but I want to be visible, standing in line.

  10. OK, here I am, into the fray!

  11. BTW this is still only day 1 of me being your FAVORITE Canadian for 2 days (until about 6 p.m. my time when day 2 will start).

  12. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    I kinda feel like I’m talking to myself here…hhmmm…what do the voices in my head say?

  13. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    If you ever do a cookbook, you should let me be a guest (you can stick me in the back) I’ll share my recipe for Hood Wings and Mack~ Daddy n Cheese! Of course, you can test them in your tester kitchen and make sure it meets your approval…

  14. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    Is there a time expiration on this contest? I have an icestorm on the way…you’ll never hear from again…at least until the thaw…then I’ll be back!

  15. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    But – now wait! You gotta tell me – did I come close?

  16. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    I have really got to pee!

  17. whiteladyinthehood Says:

    My eyes are swimming!

  18. Oh sure, wait until I turn my back for a few days, and start some silly contest to unseat me form being your number one PITA! I’m gonna get ya for this, I swear – even if it takes me the rest of this year to do so!
