Humboldt Mirror readership skyrockets

First there were some, after which there were more. Damn!

Whoa! All of a sudden-like, Humboldt Mirror readership shot up by a whopping some! The increase would be off the chart, but the Graphics Dept. made the graph taller so that the big brown bar on the far right could stay on the chart. Pretty clever, no?

As you can see, on Nov. 2 our readership was at one level, but by Nov. 6 it had spiked to a completely different level. Anecdotal evidence suggests the impressive surge occurred around the same time two “Occupiers,” a Loleta third-grader and his 4-H goat began monitoring the site.

(Yes, people, the goat counts!)

  1. Great. Now we’re going to have goats shitting on the courthouse lawn and bleating about having their student loans forgiven.

  2. One thing’s certain: The protesters are definitely not smarter than the third-grader.

  3. Ah. Vintage bug, through and through. As you would say, Hugs!!

  4. Awesome! Now someone please get me a wipey to clean my computer screen.

  5. I thought the chart showed the increase in the number of people effing thrilled that Garr Nielsen is gone. He’d have been out there ladling hot chocolate for the occupinheads. Good job Murl!

  6. That warrants two snorts and a guffaw. God I love this blog.

  7. I’m in for a chortle, ‘stache.

  8. Did you see the photos of the courthouse lawn after the freedom fighters were run off? They’re changing the world all right. They’re making it uglier.

  9. What? NOT!!!!

  10. One thing’s certain: The authors of this blog are definitely not smarter than the (average) third-grader. Way to go from going from .1% readership to 1% readership – you’re moving on up!!

    Apparently you need an ego check.

  11. That is so fucking funny that Aegipan is repeating the joke for you. I guess it’s true what they say: You can’t fix stupid.

  12. He’s making the best case I’ve seen so far for free college educations. Maybe the occupunks are onto something after all. What a laugh!

  13. And the poor guy wonders why he can’t get a job.

  14. Hey, I was just reiterating a previous point made earlier, only with a couple ‘clarifications’ of course. Mainly I just wanted congratulate the folks at the Humb-Mirror here on their achievement. It takes a lot of effort to achieve such an achievement after all. We need to support our local media, right?

  15. Aegipan, you must be channeling dear Jan this morning and to you I give the same advice: Pamprin and a life, get both!

    The Occupy movement has ‘jumped the shark’, nationally and most certaintly locally. Dearest, smelly Verbena filming the cops, could you lose the legitimacy of your message faster?

    Of course the goat counts, the goat at least has a common sense approach to life: eat, shit, sleep, bleat….kinda like Plain Jane and the other HH posters, except the goat has no pretensions to intelligence.

  16. Were the task not so daunting, I think I might attempt to explain to Aegipan the meaning of the word “satire.” Failing that, I have only this to say:

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha you complete idiot.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

  17. Aegipan, I think clarification may not be a particular strength of yours.

  18. You know I saw this pack of trolls here on the net, and my initial thought was “shit, trolls need to eat too!” Bon appetite ladies and gentleman!

    Oh, and for the record I DO have a life unlike some of you trolls trolling this troll bridge.

  19. My goldfish read everyday and give a big (2) thumbs up…Oh wait.

  20. Wow, whiny little Aegipan dude. You do not appear to be getting any smarter. A troll in a blog context is a person who habitually or obsessively comments on a topic unrelated to the post or comments thereto. Not someone who thinks you’re an idiot. (Which, FYI, you are.)

  21. I applaud the choice of brown for your readership bars. Most appropriate after the defication episode down at occupy.

  22. Thanks, friend. We live for verisimilitude.

  23. Yes the correct term for someone who thinks you’re an idiot, Aegipan, is astute.

  24. It’s pretty impressive to see our brown columns almost double in size overnight. You really captured the event with stunning clarity Graphics Dept. Good job. Now sober up and get back to work dumbasses.

  25. I want to poop on Heraldo’s (errr…Larry’s) Blog, I mean head.

  26. Aegipan, eat shit and go the fuck away.

  27. Congrats….I guess. However, you might get that Loleta 3rd grader to assist in proof reading the huffing and puffing about your new readership increasing by a “whopping some”. I believe the correct word would be “sum”, a noun meaning the total obtained by adding quantities.

  28. Actually anon 2:42, I’ll sum it up for you. You’re a douchepickle. And maybe you should reread the post. “Some” is the correct word.

  29. Poor Larry, he’s never been the same since election day last November, 2010

  30. Why does my comment not show up on the thread?

  31. One thing is for sure – Betsy Lambert acted unprofessional like a child-kid-adult reliving public school K-4 playground days……..her communication style was overly aggravating, aggressive, arrogant, nagging, extremely melo-dramatic…….shall anyone disagree?

    As if an admittance by an occupy eye witness was going to spill the brown beans, oops,…….. Time to table the discussion until surveillance video verifies information on the scoop of the poop.

    The one occupy guy was right………banks poop and pee on many people everyday…….can’t deny that figuratively……….good thing for gold.

    Now, about all that other poop and peeing by clean-cut uppidy folks AND street-dwellers who are too disrespectful when owning their pet dog……….pet owners are the worst for poop and pee incidents, worse than the mere homeless, heck, worse than even the banks…..what is that abount balance?


  32. According to a Roman tradition mentioned by Plutarch, Aegipan sprung from the incestuous intercourse of Valeria of Tusculum and her father Valerius. This explains a lot. Essentially this dumbfuck’s genes are so screwed up that he is like the poor kid on the porch at the beginning of “Deliverance”. Ya know the little dude with the banjo and the VERY wide forehead. The very reason why its illegal for kin to procreate with each other. .

  33. Ha…Ha…Ass Hat Really! Give me some love? I know you want too, Butt I understand. Thanks anyway, Love you bugs, It could be worse, It might just be the Herald and the TS. Oh wait we have the Mirror… Thanks Rob!

  34. I did not have sex with that woman (not that white woman) Billy…. Billy… Billy…Herman…Cain?

  35. Funnier than all hell.. Normal folk still tune in at the same rate here on the Mirror. Over at HH, PJ, Mitch, Tra, robash and friends boiled over in such a frenzy it seems like a “circle jerk” gone ballistic. Go figure.

    Poor things. You really can’t fix stupid. Actually you can’t fix much and that’s why the progs are getting meaner than nuclear waste . Go figure.

  36. As if Cain’s accusers right along with Gloria Alread(?) and her political groupee/cronies did not pre-choreograph the timing of the accusations to counter the diminishing vote support for “ENTRENCHED” establishment Republicans and Democrats – Repubs and Dems….the 2 headed supernova…….Kaboom, its over!

    Thank You Duopoly voters and mass/local media, your face the music time is coming nearer after generation upon generation of apathy, stupidity, deception, fraud, social schemes and ruses, etc………..

    Question: Can anyone see what happens to a country with unfettered and corruptive party politics BEFORE irreparable damage is done?

    Answer: Mostly the few seers and prophets, the forthright proud types, and the honest folks with good values and principles who don’t use social conveniences like religion as a hypocracy tool to better wealth..


  37. The Hblog folks are rolling in shit. Not much of a surprise. On and H came, fuck off with your stupidity. Prog’s are the most racist folks around, just saying a fact.

  38. If people don’t like guns, they don’t buy one.
    If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If people are vegetarians, they don’t eat meat.
    If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

    If someone is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
    If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

    When someone is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If someone doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

    If someone is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
    A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

    If someone decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

    If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

  39. very good point Sam

  40. Really! My (Heraldos) “asshat” was funny. I get no love here? Josephine excluded and I’m not jealous of her man crush on George, well kinda. My life must suck if I reading this blog and care?

  41. Sam @9:10.

    “If someone decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.”

    Not a history buff that Sam.

  42. HOJ. We know you are an idiot. You don’t need to keep telling us.

  43. Joel, PJ, Mitch, tra, nan, I’m a vet. How about you, come on, any of you mouthy assholes. I did my time, got out. Went out school, created several businesses, employed people. Payed taxes. Lots of us did just that, fuck all you whiners.

  44. C Dickens: Really? “History Buff”? You equate today with England in Dicken’s time? Please, enlighten us all, connect the dots for us.

What say you?
