Gut Rumbles

June 30, 2005

another milestone

I checked my site meter today and I see that I am closing in fast on the 2,000,000th visitor to my humble site. I should be there in less than two weeks if things keep going the way they are now.

I think I'm going to make a big production and award a prize to my 2,000,000th visitor. Gut Rumbles really has been a labor of love for me, and I never imagined when I started that so many people would read me. I remember thinking that I was a Tall Dog when I was getting 35 visitors a day. Some of that Original Crew is still around today, too. I'm kinda proud of that fact.

Anyway, here's what I'm offering as a prize for my 2,000,000th visitor:

1) A six-pack of really good imported cigars.

2) A genuine, one-of-a-kind GUT RUMBLES bumper sticker.

3) A jar of "home-made wine," created in the Acidman back-porch still.

4) YOUR NAME on my blog.

I think those are worthy prizes. You'll be the envy of all your friends if you win. So pay attention.

I'll be watching.


How about your recipe for that famous cat stew you make?

What? No all expense paid trip to Costa Rica? Bwaaaaah.....

You cheap bastard! You need to include a signed photograph of yourself passed out in the barco-lounger. Someone is going to fire up one of those cigars and blow the bumper sticker off the truck when they crack open that moonshine, then the only place their name will be is on a gravestone!

Oh man oh man oh man oh man I hope I win the prizes,,,and yes, an autographed photo of yourself and the salad ingredients would be a nice added touch!

.. Catfish is right.. I'm unemployed...

Posted by: Eric on June 30, 2005 09:52 AM many times as I am here a day, I've got the prize in the bag LOL. I'm thinking that you should find a stuffed animal in the likeness of a dead cat and give that away.

I WANT that home made wine!!!

Posted by: Maeve on June 30, 2005 10:18 AM

PS...I'd settle for the bumper sticker and the hooch....ok?

Posted by: Ruth on June 30, 2005 10:34 AM

How about the .410 Derringer that your Uncle Virgil has?
I bet he could be persuaded to part with it on such an auspicious occasion.

I will throw in a Washburn Rover RO10 Travel guitar just to make things a little more interesting. It has a retail price of $199.90. The ultimate travel guitar! Play it any time or any place. Bring the Washburn Rover with you. Anywhere! Comes complete with case, instructional CD ROM, strap and 3 picks. Just let me know where and when to ship it.

Can I stuff the ballot box? Or how about a hanging chad for good measure?

Posted by: Ruth on June 30, 2005 11:05 AM

Ten bucks says that the "really good imported cigars" have wooden tips and the name 'Jewels' on them. Oh well, at least it'll be something that burns to hide the reefer smell around here. How about throwing in an mp3 of you playing 'Wipe Out'!.....

All kidding aside, Rob, congrats. I'm still looking for my tenth visitor!

I never win anything...

Do you have more than 1 bumper sticker (are they for sale)?

Posted by: Jane on June 30, 2005 12:36 PM

Bumper stickers are free. I hand them out at blog-meets. (got loaded one day AND ORDERED 200 of those sumbitches.) Send me your address and I'll mail you one.

Posted by: Acidman on June 30, 2005 12:59 PM

Just send me the money

Posted by: GUYK on June 30, 2005 01:34 PM

Reading your site is all the reward I desire!

Posted by: witch on June 30, 2005 01:38 PM

Holy crap, 2 million? Thats incredible. Congrats.

Posted by: Alli on June 30, 2005 03:14 PM

A Gut Rumbles bumper sticker? Oh man, will the cheap thrills never end? LMAO
Congrats on nearing a milestone.....I shall do my best to be your 2 mill......I could use the wine quite frankly.

Will you be hand delivering it? *snerk*

Posted by: PattiG on June 30, 2005 04:30 PM

You've got alcohol and tobacco.. but no firearms? C'mon, at least throw a box of .22's in there or something.

Posted by: Mr. Lion on June 30, 2005 05:44 PM

^^^BWAHAHAHAHAAA!!! Mr. Lion's right you know!

For the record (and the newer visitors) I was Rob's 25,000th visitor and the prize even way back then was pretty damned good...steak and brews and an evening of good conversation all provided by the A-man himself and in person.

Congrats on 2 mil Rob!

Posted by: marcl on June 30, 2005 06:42 PM

I think airfare or hitching a ride with A-man to the next blogmeet is a good prize.

Posted by: Dawn on June 30, 2005 07:55 PM

i want a picture of roscoe--pumped of course!!!

Posted by: mikeymom on June 30, 2005 09:42 PM

I'll autograph the guitar... but the bionic dick must be delivered in person. I'll show you how to operate it for free.

Posted by: Acidman on July 1, 2005 12:15 AM

Here's to reaching the 2 million mark and beyond. May we be lucky enough to enjoy many more years of reading about your taking on life head on and the results of same.
