I want to break the all-time record for the most comments on a WordPress blog post.


Okay, some of you will see this as a shallow attempt on my part to bump up my stats.

And I’m not saying you are wrong.

But here’s the thing… oh, thing, I missed you, where have you been?

I have always said that I have the best commenters on WordPress. I have two posts that have over 1,000 comments on them… True, half of those are my return answers to comments, because I always answer my comments, but still… And I will even go so far as to admit that my comment sections… OUR comment sections… are sometimes the funniest part of my posts. Are you happy now?

But this all has me wondering what the record for number of comments on one post actually is. I want to see if we can break it. Just for the fun of it. We will all be part of a social media experiment. We will all go down in the history books as record breakers. We can amaze and astound the WordPress overlords and maybe have them take notice of us.

And it will be fun.

Oh, and I am a little disappointed that only one person even commented on that cute picture of me as a baby in the last post I did, so here is your chance to make it up to me…

You will laugh at my antics... That is my solemn promise to you... Or your money back... Stop on by...

    Here’s one question! What is wrong with humans? I just learned (national geographic) that some Canadian has come up with a wonderful plan to save the caribou. Fit a captured wold with a tracking collar, release him and follow him back to the pack where you can kill them all from the safety of a helicopter! Um, I’m pretty sure wolves are endangered. How is this an acceptable response? How about protecting their environment?

    No offense to any of my dear Canadian friends, clearly they are not personally responsible any more than I am for the whack decisions the good ole USA makes. It really is more of a human question than a political or geographical one

    Where. Is. Everyone????????

    I just posted a comment and I don’t see it. It’s the world’s first stealth comment!

    Hey… Is this thing on?

  8. Trent Lewin says:

    Art, I gotta ask – have you lost it? That crazy appeal has worn off? Where is everyone? Your link totally worked but only Matticus has shown up. We all love Matticus but we need volume yo.

    I hereby declare that the Comment post is reopened for business. Please post craziness in order to keep myself, Trent Lewin, amused. Also, prepare your best barbs for the creator of this strange and wonderful blog post. He is always watching us. Always.

    Nert! Nert! Tnert! Hellooooo!

  12. dcyankee says:

    Commented as requested. 🙂

  13. My comment is muted silence.

  14. I read your story ….. The Seven Kingdoms ….. well at least the first part …. what’s next?

    • Editing. I am looking for volunteer editors who will work for a free, signed copy of the book and some recognition on the blog… because I’m broke, and have no real job. Then, I try to sell the book, after self-publishing… for the same reasons.

  15. Jim S. says:

    If I say No Comment, is that a comment? Or is that not a comment? Or perhaps a metacomment on the state of commenting? Hmmm

  16. I think this post is commentable …. and recommentable

  17. kunstkitchen says:

    Love the skeleton pic! Good reminder…it’s a temporary situation. A little grim, but hey, with all the GRIM “…really GREAT, it’s going to be really GREAT…” reaping going on in the halls of govern – ring…still a good reminder, if you get my drift?

    Alright. I’ve seen evidence of my buddy’s being here. I have 2 days left of vacation before I go back to my full time part time job. Not having much success in the replacement of the full time job , but getting pretty annoyed with one of the job boards that sends me open positions. Just this morning I got notified of a position, an “excellent fit” that was posted hours ago, as opposed to days ago, and when I went to apply got a notice the posting was closed 3 hours ago. Grrrr.

  22. julie says:

    Hello my crazies! I can always count on a good laugh when I visit here! Still working too hard for not nearly enough monies…. clearly I need to check in here more often. Where’s that head minion?

  23. mattblack42 says:

    Hey did you ever break that world record?

  24. The link works! Hallelujah!!!! The computer moron is dead, long live the computer moron.

  25. Elyse says:

    I have the most amazing feeling of deja vu whenever I come here.

  26. Tippy Gnu says:

    Due to a misprint in a Gibber Jabberin post I’m writing for tomorrow, I have to leave this comment, in order to get your count up to 44,495. It’s either that or admit I made a mistake and then correct the post. And as a graduate of Trump University, I can never make a mistake.

  27. Christopher says:

    What kind of comment am I supposed to leave if I don’t know what to say? The weird thing is I’m usually not at a loss for words. Maybe I could start rambling about how I don’t know what I should say. That’ll work. Wait a minute. That’s exactly what I’m doing now. The thoughts in my head are going directly to the keyboard and from there to the screen. HELP! MY HANDS ARE POSSESSED!

  28. 1jaded1 says:

    Even though I’m not new, here is another comment just because.

  29. weggieboy says:

    I love the comments on my own blog and answer each one. To that end, i support any blogger who does the same. Hope you get your record number of comments! (You got one more follower out of me, thanks to your skittles/racist post!)

  30. Hi there, I’m a follower and I love your posts! You add laughter to my day and a spring to my step as I think of psychedelic pigs and the Hughmanatee! Thought I’d help you towards you goal. Good luck and keep posting!

  31. chris ludke says:

    The art world is FUBAR! I blame the elite establishment in the ivory towers. It’s time to tear them down. We have to stop taxpayer’s money from going being wasted on more crap art.

  32. artifiswords says:

    Tossing my two bits into the cup. Hope at least Guinness gets on board. And now, I’m suddenly thirsty. Good luck with your endeavor…and CHEERS!

  33. PorterGirl says:

    This is my comment for the sake of making a comment and hopefully breaking the world commenting record. I secretly fancy Boris Johnson. Hope this helps your endeavour,

  34. First comment in July.

    Also, is this the appropriate place to post proposed baby names?

  35. Oh it has been too long since visiting this record breaker! Have you managed to find out if this is in fact a record breaker?

  36. A Kinder Way says:

    Helping the cause! 😉 Good luck.

  37. jdawgswords says:

    over 40,000 comments so far huh?

  38. Generic comment designed to make you feel good, let you know my blog exists, and maybe even pique your curiosity enough to go look at it. A good filler for when there isn’t enough time or caffeine reserves to think of a meaningful comment.

    • I applaud both your forthrightness and the fact that you have a plan… unfortunately, if I got lured to visit blogs attached to every generic comment, I wouldn’t have time to have my own blog… It takes at least 20 generic comments… but sometimes only one non-generic one… but not always… HA!

  39. Okay, people, I’m being held hostage. Art won’t comment on my post until I comment on THIS post. He’s a tyrant, I tell you!

  40. kunstkitchen says:

    okay…I am surfing…but I’d rather be adding to your record on WordPress.

  41. kunstkitchen says:

    Hmmm. Just dropping by. Drove downtown to return a library book. Foolish me. There’s never any place to park!!! Got lost slightly in the one way street intelligence test and missed an exit to go west… I did find my way home. My mental GPS failed to get me out of town. Nothing new here.

  42. 1jaded1 says:

    Just checking to see who has been here lately…

  43. djmatticus says:

    I wonder how many of these comments are mine…
    And how many are my evil twin’s?

  44. Trent Lewin says:

    So yo, I miss this place… where are all the crazies at? I want crazies!

  45. dale harkness says:

    The many interesting things written here provide an entertaining read. Adding a comment is like hanging out next to a heavily covered graffiti wall and finding a place to spray your tag among all the many different expressions.

  46. kunstkitchen says:

    Hello. Yippie! more yay and hurray! Have another day of humorous fun.

  47. julie says:

    Hi Everybody!!!

  48. So. When’s the sci-fi book coming out? If you need any eyes looking through it, I’d be way more than happy to help. Because you kind of left the last one on a cliffhanger.

    And I’m sure everyone’s arms are getting tired.

  49. axiomaticentity says:

    I hope you are like God…well I know you already consider yourself a god. ..but you know what at i mean….LOL and please accept all apologies for all depressing stuff I posted on the old record breaking blog….I needed someone to pour out my heat to and. …you …like God himself….was there….just like a god…only with a weird sense of humor, and i don’t think gods wears sunglasses …but I’m not going to nit pick. Also I picture God as more of an almighty diety, rather than a beach bum sort but who knows, I could be wrong. Maybe you are a prophet and god is using you to spread silliness to the world. Because this world can sure use some silliness. I mean….look at the middle east…..that’s what happens when people stop laughing. Once laughter stops, only thing left is hatred or indifference.
    By the way everyone you can probably blame me for him shutting down his other post. I think He tired of my crap…. So fire away. I’m prepared to be skewered. Even by Author himself. Buthe Arhtur i would still like you to hear the video named Storms for Arthur, which is on my YouTube account if you care to hear it. It’s one of the only songs I still remember how to play on the guitar.

    I left this for you on my you tube page…Storms for Arthur Video
