It's Happy Dance Time!

Yesterday I was as giddy as a school girl when I discovered the follower count here at The Ranter's Box hit the 300 mark! A big shout-out goes to Byakuya over at Hilarious Images for officially becoming the 300th reader. If you aren't familiar then head on over, have a gander, show some blog love, and make a new friend or two.

In the meantime, check out this wee video that encompasses the spirit of just how happy I am to know that after a year you guys keep coming back for more snarkiness and that our little bloggy family continues to grow (but hopefully grow in a way that is different than the trouser snake in this dude's undies):

And for all you loyal man readers' out there, just pretend this is me dancing in some sexy lingerie or a bikini. Also, I have absolutely no idea what the heck this video is meant to be advertising but it seems like a good example of a happy dance all the same.

Happy Hump Day my lovelies!

  19. Congrats on the 300! Have you ever had an itch (you know, an 'itch') and just wanted to get rid of it without people realizing you were trying to get rid of an itch... I think he did a great job taking care of his...

  20. What the hell is up with that video? lol Congrats on the 300 followers! Yay!!

    And LMAO at Drake! (cough . . . sorry Drake)

  21. Amazing video. Grats on 300. But that video is insanely epic. Stealing that fyi.

  22. Congrats on 300! I didn't need the video though. LOL!

  23. Hopefully the video is just a joke because that guy looks like a major moron.

  24. @Mynx: Thanks my bloggy friend from down under.

    @Canadianbloggergirl: Thank you. As for the video apparently some of the folks are enjoying the scenery.

    @Lemons Don't Make Lemonade: Thank you for your kind words. Sentiments like that are why I continue to blog.

    @Bouncin' Barb: So, the secret is out of the bag that I'm not really as snarky as people would assume? ...Yes, lets definitely have a party!!

    @Joshua: Thanks. The video is good for a quick laugh, nothing dirty about it plus it will make every other guy in the world feel like he can dance way better ; )

    @CWMartin: Tee hee! So a bit of a stretch for you to translate the guy in boxer briefs to a chick in a sexy bikini?

    @Pearson Report: Thank you Jenny. You always bring sunshine to this blog. Much appreciated.

    @Drake Sigar: Well it's a good think you just have to hit the replay button.

    @Copyboy: Merci beaucoup mon ami!

    @SharleneT: So, you think an itch is really what his problem was? ; )
