How did this happen?

I found out that on March 3, 2003 (03/03/03), evidently my site was #24 in the Top 25 most popular sites according to Popdex.

How the hell did that happen?

That would be above #29 (The SciFi.com Battlestar Galactica site) and #32 (Wired News: Monkeylike Baby Bot Meets World). I’m in shock and awe.

It must have been The Infamous Check.

  • that is too great and too funny! Omg, you rock!


  • That is top shelf!!! That is some GOOD STUFF!!


  • Are we related Joz?

    Less than a month ago I was *extremely* tempted to write a check for a bullshit ticket too to the name of City of Fucking Long Beach.

    So, did you send it? I am anxious in knowing if they said anything…he he he….


  • Yes, I did send it.

    If you click on the links on “The Infamous Check” you can see the other times I’ve written about this (including the story of how I got the ticket in the first place).


  • omg .. that still cracks me up!!


  • Hell if I know how you ended up # 24? :)


  • That is the most awesome check EVER.


  • I did something similar a few years back because a faulty parking meter “expired” on me when I know I was supposed to have at least another hour. As a result, I got my first, and last, ticket. Sent in a check much like yours, full of outrage and denial, writing in the comment line: “The fucking meter is faulty, look into it.”

    Three weeks later I got a letter in the mail stating: “Thank you for notifying us. The problem has since been rectified. Enclosed you should find a refund check in the amount of 45$ (the amount of the ticket). Have a nice fucking day.” I shit you not, that is exactly what it said. I think it was that day I decided that not all politicians were bad…just the vast majority…


  • the check is now my wallpaper, again


  • That’s great…did they cash it??

    I’d be nervous to do that. People in LA have absolutely no sense of humor. I’d be afraid they’d haul me out in a straight jacket for some Clockwork Orangish deprogramming.
