I don't know what's going on with my "World's Weirdest/Stupidest Conspiracy Theories" post over at Swallowing the Camel. I usually get about 2 comments per post, but in the last three days that post has been flooded with 126 comments: People with even stranger conspiracy theories about Elvis and Jackie O. and Jack the Ripper, arguments between 9/11 Truthers and non-Truthers, rants from people who believe the Beatles (and Prince, and Janet Jackson) are occultists (Janet's nipple-ring ornament is an occult symbol of some sort, apparently). It's wild stuff - some entertaining, some annoying or a little boring, but all interesting.

Somebody HAD to have posted your blog address somewhere!
I liked the Jackie O conspiracy. I'm sure there were MANY times she wanted to kill him! ;)
I think I'm in love with Matthew and Jim!

Some blog called "dooce" put a link in their sidebar, but I can't see all the traffic coming from there. When you Google "weirdest conspiracy theories" now, Swallowing the Camel is the first thing that pops up.

Here's the culprit -- (I noticed it with one of the key words I keep track of.) Jonah Goldberg, of National Review.
