Tonight, We Dine in Hell

Time flies when you’re making fat cheerleader jokes, doesn’t it? 
This is the 300th post of The Production Line, which is at least 298 posts more than we thought you’d pay attention for. Rob and I are immensely grateful to everyone that swings by and reads what little coherence we can muster – and our readership has grown in ways we wouldn’t have even dreamed of when we decided to give this a go. A sincere thank you to everyone that reads, comments, links to us, and has welcomed us into this community.
I thought it might be fun to throw all 300 entries in a Wordle.net text analyzer and see which words we use the most around here. I had a strong feeling TPL’s favorite word would be some bastardization of “Bertuzzi,” closely followed by “sucks,” but here’s what Wordle came up with:
Disregarding common English words, we learn that the most uttered words in TPLand are as follows:
1. Wings (1158)
2. Red (684)
3. Game (596)
4. Season (400)
5. Bertuzzi (298)
6. Howard (293)
7. Detroit (270)
8. Games (261)
9. Second (256)
10. Leino (226)
11. Helm (223)
12. Jimmy (217)
13. Chris (173)
14. Eaves (166)
15. Todd (165)

The list of words used only once is actually quite funny:

Bumpy, champions, Wallflowers, teal, Tumms, cowgirls, rambling, lover, weary, distractions, Frenchman, trifecta, Vader, purge, beejers, inserted, leggiest, fuzzies, prisoner, shit-talk-free, peyote, Snookie (I blame Rob), Creed-style… to name a few

I, for one, promise you more egregious use of “lover” and possibly “beejers.”

  1. JJ, I promise you every opportunity to make jailsexed happen. If you can find a way to squeeze it into every JJ Special, I will print it.

    Furthermore, if we need to have you write a guest spot once in a while just to increase the amount of times you can drop "jailsexed," I'm committed to making that happen, too.

    You're on, son. By post #500, it's safe to say that it'll need to have been said approximately 250 times. That's an average of 1.25 per post. No problem. No problem at all.

    Jailsexed.

  2. Congrats on #300, guys. TPL is a magical world of crazy pictures, wild imagination and Contuzzi. It's nice to know that in a season as bad as this one, there are places we can go to cheer ourselves up. This is one.

    Oh, why not. Jailsexed.

  3. Shouldn't the 300th poster be recognized?? jailsexed or otherwise…maybe a prize?? (just trying to rid my home of unsightly Hossa items)

  4. <3 your Mom. Who else's mom would be posting on a blog using jailsex in a sentence without threatening to wash your mouth and brain out with soap?

    Congrats on 300! And to think I only found this site around the time of 275 or so… I didn't know what I was missing!

    Here's to another 300!

  6. Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed Jailsexed

    I also think frolicking is a word with potential

  7. HAPPY 300TH, TPL!!

    We're so proud of you and hope for hundreds and hundreds more. You provide a bright spot in our lives each and every day. Our lives would be a dark, sad and emo place without you. Just thinking about it makes me want to put on a Dashboard album.

    Sincerely,
    Jailsexed

  8. Hee hee – I clicked on Jailsexed's profile – why am I not surprised?

    And for the record, my mom would DEFINITELY never use "Jailsexed" in a sentence. Or probably "frolicking," either.

  9. Howard needs to overtake Bertuzzi and Helm needs to beat Leino. Just so much wrong otherwise.

    This blog also needs more Pavel – but that is my own bias talking. 🙂

  10. Jenn, thank you for your kind words – they mean a lot. A lot of jailsexed.

    Mom, everyone who reads TPL is rewarded with jailsex. Surprised you didn't know that.

    Casey, I have NO IDEA what context "Creed-like" was used. I'm going to assume it was Discher, because it sounds hilarious.

    Beanie, I can honestly say that my sailor-mouth might be the result of equal parts my mom and Italianness (which, consequently is equal parts mom and dad, so she's 75% to blame).

    Mauvais, here's hoping we have you for another 300 and that we all get to share in the 300th post of http://mauvaisgardiendebut.blogspot.com/

    Andy, frolicking is going to happen. For you. Promise.

    Jailsexed, we're coming for you. Hard.

    Baroque, I think it's partially fitting that Bertuzzi comes up this much…but Helm has no business below Leino. It's something that will be remedied IMMEDIATELY.

    "Jailsexing you nasty since 2009" is the most amazing thing I've ever read. You just blew my mind.

    Well played, sirs. Well played.

  12. Geee Mike, you know I'm not good with math but WTF…if your numbers are correct, and I'm 75% responsible for how you turned out…I'm damned proud!! Have a wonderful F'in day you little shit!!
