Home / General / 500,000



This evening, LGM passed 500,000 readers in a month for the first time in its history. Kind of a milestone. There’s only one way I can think of celebrating this and that’s with Mickey, the Firefighting Cat of Minneapolis.

    LGMPrime coming soon?

  • 118,000 of them were Jeff Goldstein stalking SEK

        Does that 500,000 also include The Donald and Anonymous trying out different IP addresses to try and leave a comment?

    Hey, you guys deserve it. The discussion over young Conor’s sentiments is first rate.

  • PhoenixRising

    Throw up four more of those Young Conor’s Folly posts, and you’ll hit 600k by midnight Monday.

    Needs more cowbell.

    I hope that’s a unionized firefighting cat.

    • Well, natural cat behavior clearly would lead one to think they’d be good union members…..

      • On the other hand, my cat’s laziness could remind one of the stereotype of a surly Teamster sleeping on the job. Have to think about this one.

        Hmm, I think cat behavior is more like that of a libertarian owner type.

    Oh, and I miss Henry.

    I became more than vaguely aware of this place almost exactly four years ago, after Farley’s coverage of the news out of South Ossetia was recommended elsewhere. It has long since become my primary time killer. Congrats.

      Incidentally, a piece in The Diplomat on the topic of aircraft carriers by one R. Farley is currently recommended reading at Powerline.

    Mickey didn’t start the fire
    It was always burnin’
    As the world’s been turnin’.

      I’m skeptical of that. With his great love of fires and typical cat lack of morals, I think he’d have to a prime suspect for most any fire he went to.

    The remarkable thing is that Werner Herzog directed that when he was seven.

  • UserGoogol

    All advancements in technology have been driven by cat videos.

  • It’s the merch.
