Fabulous! We Broke a Thousand!

Wow. My followers number has just passed a thousand.
Thanks everybody.

To celebrate here's a picture of my friend's dog Mr. Fabulous.
(Don't let the name fool you, Fab is a girl dog.)
Here she is doing that trick where you humiliate the dog by placing food on their face before they're allowed to eat it. 

The saddest part however is in the next moment, Fab is going to discover that she does not like pickles.

Awww how disappointing for poor Mr. Fabulous! hehehe

Congrats on all your followers!

Petra said...

Congratulations on breaking a thousand, Jorge. FWIW, I have been following your blog for a long time now - about a year and a half I think, but am not a "registered" follower.

Maybe if all the people out there like me registered as followers you'd double your followers again.

: ) P

Petra said...

I did it! I am now officially following your blog! For those who are interested, but don't know how, you can click on the tiny button at the top of the page, just above the "from the" of the title "Dispatches from the Island" on the home page.

: ) P

Annie Beth said...

Congratulations. I don't officially follow you, but I do check your blog very frequently. Just think how many lurkers you probably have. Love the blog. It is so random and funny, and it's my kind of humor.

Also love LOST, btw. It's the only show I really follow. Great characters, great storyline, great musical score.

Aaaaand, on the off chance that someone who is reading this has a friend or relative with spina bifida, I'd love to have you check out the lifestyle accelerator spina bifida community forum.
Hope that's ok to say on here. If not, I'll edit it. I am the mother of a child with spina bifida, and just thought I'd raise awareness! You do have over 1000 followers, you know. ;)

Eugen Caitaz said...

But I would have ate it!

Mr. Kirker said...

I want to see the follow-up picture with the dog's reaction to the pickle!

Sarah said...

poor dog! all that work for something unwanted!

Avinash said...

I should get a special merit for having been reading your blogs since the beginning.

And also for having controlled my masturbation urges when photos of you pop up on here.

Dr. Megan said...

Congratulations! Your blog is really funny and I've recommended it to several people. I think you should have some sort of celebration involving beer!

Congrats on a Thou! I don't know if that means anything specific in bloggerland but other than a stat #, it's pretty awesome having made the connection w/ so many ppl who enjoy your observation of life's moments. I don't follow many blogs, but I can say that reading yours has enriched my life with humor, travel, family, growing veggies, appreciating the simple treasures in life that often times go unnoticed - all unique and noteworthy. Just like you :o) So glad I found your blog, I laugh and share it with friends and family and that is paying it forward my friend! THANK YOU FOR SHARING! You are a peach!

Tammy said...

Your my hero. I strive to reach 100!
Congrats-well deserved, you put alot into your blog and 1000 is a very deserving #.

Malea said...

Yes, but how many of those "followers" get a little more joy out of life by leaving you a comment? I love your blog posts because #1, they're short, and #2, they're sweet, and #3 they make me smile.

Oilerguy said...

Congrats on the 1000 followers! (I have been reading your blog ever since you moved over from MySpace but just recently actually signed up)

Tasha Who? said...

That shot would certainly have a place on ihasahotdog.com

Ralph- said...

Tell Mr. Fab that i said, "hey."

Sproggie said...

Oops I never spotted the follow button. Have now registered officially :D

Julie said...

Congrats on breaking a thousand! I think I'm up to 3! Lol

Crissybug said...

You may have 1000 followers on blogger, but you also have 4880 people subscribed to your blog on Google Reader. I just subscribed last night. I am a big fan of LOST and happened upon your site when I did a search about Churros con Chocolate (I recently went to Madrid, and was going to write about it.) Looking forward to reading more on the blog.

Erin W said...

D'oh! I THOUGHT I was following, now I'm official, sorry for the tardy.

Kristin said...

Congratulations Jorge!! I have also been following for a while as I am a HUGE LOST and fan of yours :) Now i am officially following you! Keep up the awesome posts! They help during the long months without Lost!

ReNaTo UêGa said...

Hey Jorgeman... poor Mr. Fabulous! Hahaha¹
I would like to see Nunu in this situation! Hahaha² =P

Please Type Legibly said...

Congratulations, Jorge...hope you have many, many more followers to come. That dog looks a lot like mine, down to the look on her face when presented with food on her nose. My kids do that to Bear.

katie! (: said...

that pup is sucha cutiee!
and i agree with what beth said.

Irishcoda said...

I love your blog! And I think you are so cool!

Poor Mr. Fab...a pickle???

Movie Star Wife said...

Oh, poor puppy. :-(

Refidnas said...

Does Mr. Fabulous play the trumpet by any chance? Or work as a maitre d' at a fancy restaurant?

Dakota said...

402 of us sub scribe via Bloglines.
And 4880 are subscribed via Google.

So that's 6282 subscribers. Not counting all of the other blog readers. :)

Sue Wacvet said...

The dog also appears to be wearing some sort of muzzle. How does he catch food wearing a muzzle?

Kara said...

Congrats Jorge! You got us looking from LOST and kept us by being awesome....that simple.

Trizkas said...

I think there are lots of people like me, who follow your blog regularly, but never write anything. I've been reading your blog for more than a year now, and this is the first time I write.
I love your blog. It's funny, sarcastic, intelligent. Congratulations!

toysruskid said...

I did kinda wonder about that muzzle thing too. Is she wearing one or does it just look like it? And I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now ever since I saw the "Ace of Cakes" ep and Googled it and found it that way. It and you are BRILLIANT! Now I am off to make myself an "official" follower...

Megan said...

Mr Fabulous is not alone in the gender wrong names, I had a neighbor with a female mastiff named Mr. Pants.

Julie815 said...

The dog is wearing a "Gentle Leader," also known as a head harness, which stops dogs from pulling on the leash. They don't prevent dogs from eating, barking, or biting.

Pam said...

Congrats! I'm one of your newer followers and find the blog to be one of the best I read. Thanks!

BRIT! said...

The saddest part however is in the next moment, Fab is going to discover that she does not like pickles

Well now that's just adding insult to injury... err, something like that. Poor Fab!

Topanga said...

Does it sort of creep you out that you have so many followers? "Followers" sounds sort of weird and cult-like. I have one follower and I have no idea why.

Congrats, Jorge.. Yours is my favorite blog because it's just so random and unfiltered. Thanks for showing us the world through your eyes.

That doggie's going to have a sour puss right after that! Hey, at least it wasn't a habernero pepper or something.

DianaD said...

Congrats on the followers! One of the reasons could be a Yahoo Group I belong to that sent the link for your Blog :) It is a Comedy/Drama TV group that discusses different shows and has updates/newsfeeds etc. So I think that could have helped :)

How could you not tell us about this, Jorge? :0) Gotta love "The Onion"

KMH07 said...

OK, coming out of hiding and officially following your blog.

redelf said...

Why oh why do we do this to our pets? :sigh: I am sooo guilty of the peanut butter on the nose trick....now I have to try the pickle.

Susie Q said...

We tried that with our female cattle dog...she'd do anything for cheese (including jump straight up from sitting position--6'..we measured it) Anway, the boys taught her to balance a piece of cheese on her nose until they released her, then toss it in the air and catch it...she figure out if she ducked her chin, it fell off and no effort involved on her part. She never did that trick again...that breed is scary-smart.

B.R said...

Hey, Jorge! "Look out, it's the Millenium Falcon" is officialy folowing you now! The only bad thing is that our blog isn't up yet! (No time) But check us out in a few and we'll even have some lost drawings up there!

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Lynn Faruque said...

Oh see, that is just too cruel. Poor baby. lol

holleyb said...

I too, have been reading this blog (one of two I follow regularly) ... finally officially following ... let the true numbers of followers come forward!

Congrats jorge;) love you

Hi. I'm Erin. said...

Just in case you haven't seen it yet:


It's gold.

drallabg said...

Dude...enjoy the break! Thanks for keeping us in your "Loop"

styx swimmer said...

1000 ? That's quite a few, but if only you started tweeting, this number would grow to hundreds of thousands (www.twitter.com).

You guys (the LOST crew) are huge on the internet, your twitter account would break any the record (of No of followers).

Best regards from a Polish fan!


Ginger said...

That is the best name for a dog - ever! Unless it was Mr. Pickle Arm, then it would be ridiculously cool. :)

(I hope you caught the Saturday Night Live reference or else I'm gonna sound like a complete idiot!) LOL

Bev and Don said...

My dog would eat anything, anything, except olives. Hated olives. His favorite food ever? Bacon puffs, those fried bacon fat things, he absolutely loved them. His next favorite food was cheese curls.

Diane said...

I've read your blog ever since the link was posted in the Pop Candy blog of USA Today. I'm about to go figure out how to be an official follower. Thanks for entertaining us with your blog.

Eres el mejor Jorge!!! adoro t personaje!!

Kelly Deneen Raymond said...

I was wondering if that was a pickle. ha!

UrbanVox said...

Poor doggy! :)

bgprodarts said...

Jorge, Congrats on breaking a thousand. I'm looking to break 0. So if anyone is interested please stop by. I talk about random things like: being attacked at the petting zoo, disproportionate colors in a pack of M&M's (See M&M's response). Also I post artwork I've done and Pics. Thank you.


Iriel said...

Felicitaciones!!! Pobre perrito!! :(

Cassandra said...

Congrats, and I want to see a photo of Nunu doing the same trick!

Doug McCaughan said...

In another following avenue, which Twitter id is The_Real_Jorge_Garcia?

Jules said...

It's like that Family Guy episode where Brian wouldn't be humiliated with the biscuit treat on the nose.

Congratulations on passing a 1000 followers. I think I'm a registered follower. If not, I should be. I read this thing every day.

Unknown said...

This blog is such a joy to visit & read. Nothing better than a picture of one's dog. lol
Thanks :)

lyly ford said...

Hi Jorge you should look here, it's you on the ABC house promo this one you're dancing :)

Mimi said...

No related to the post...but how on earth do I follow this blog!?

B.R said...

Click follow blog at the blogger bar on the upper side of your screen in the blog's homepage to follow. Thanks, Seattle, I love you!
Baby, I hear the Blues a-calling, tossed salads and scrambled eggs, OH MERCY...

Kathy Dye said...

LOL!!! Dogs are so trusting sometimes it's unbelievable. We've tried to teach our Husky/Norwegian Elkhound that trick to no avail...he's a food-o-holic.

Hey, I just started a new blog and I'd love for some of your thousand followers to take a look at it!!!

** Hepzibah **

Nunu is protected by Bethy. I think it's not possible... or I'm wrong? lol

Heh, I'm surprised she didn't notice the vinegar smell right away. Dogs tend not to like vinegar supposedly -- some suggest it as a sort of (harmless) pepper spray to use against dogs when walking. (Alas, it has not worked too well for me.) When my dog was offered olives, she would scrunch her nose up at them in the most hilarious way! XD

Aaaanyway, congrats on getting 1000 followers! :D

James Hernandez said...


I tried that once with my German Sheperd and I learned a valuable lesson, Don't hand feed the dog that bites you! :-) Hee Hee

P.S Congrats on passing 1,000!

Denise said...

Darn you, Jorge! I just wanted to read what was new with you, and now I'm missing Fab even more.

How are you?

Christine said...

Aw! She looks like my dog, Stella. Cute!

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed

Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to

produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's

imagery. Prior to the ed hardy

line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch

Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed

, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to

skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy

time to take on a partner that could help me manage

the demand and opportunities for the ed

T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand

management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed

Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed

Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand

alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder,

there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his

new artwork. Largest selection of Ed Hardy T-Shirts and Ed Hardy here.
