Sometime in the next thirty seconds or so, Velociman will reach his millionth hit on Sitemeter.

Got there a bit sooner than expected, too. After averaging 355 hits a day for the past month, he got a month’s worth of visits in a single day, owing to one of his more notorious pieces of wit and wisdom having been picked up by Protein Wisdom...thence onward to James Wolcott at Vanity Fair...thence onward to Andrew Sullivan...and the Drudge Retort. I only discovered this when I figured out that the incessant migraine-inducing whirring I had been hearing all day was the sound of V-Man’s sitemeter drilling its way to the center of the Earth.

He’ll have enough venom in his comments section to supply a century’s worth of Claxton Rattlesnake Roundups, for sure. But we know our Vee-Man, do we not? He thrives on this sort of stuff. Eats it up like a cat nibbles on a turd-encrusted hairbrush.

I wonder if he has any prizes lined up for the lucky millionth visitor? You know, typical V-man swag: guns, monkeys, alcohol...or perhaps a gasoline-powered generator and a four years’ supply of powdered eggs ’n’ biscuits?
