Staff in Popular Lists
Another chilled December week has come and gone. And it was a wild one in the world of lists, what better way to capture some of the best ones than through a compilation of sorts. We’ve got a list with a rapist winning the Bachelor, lists of the Top Hipster Colleges and naturally the list of the 100 Hottest Women Ever. Stick around and enjoy the fun.
What better way to celebrate 2011 than with the list of things we’d all like to pretend they never happened. The team at BuzzFeed put together the list we’d all like to forget ever existed. If we’re reminding you about some of these audacious events that happened over the last 12 months… we’re sorry for sharing this list. Including: Planking, Black Friday Madness and Junderpants. SMH.
If we told you that behind that link of the 7 Biggest Cheaters in Game Show History there would be a true story of a convicted serial killer and rapist who wormed his way onto a dating show and won, would you believe us? Well it’s true. In ’78, Rodney Alcala appeared on a show as Bachelor #1 and lied his way to a date with “Sensational” Cheryl Bradshaw. Poor Cheryl had no idea what she was in for.
This sweet list will allow you to breakdown the code you’ll be hearing on college campuses around the country over the next few weeks. The jargon will come from students, “Can I borrow your notes?” which actually means, “Can I copy your notes?” and from teachers “The final is open book.” translating to “You should have bought the newer more annotated version of the textbook.” Read up and be prepared my friends.
There is only one way to really describe this list. It’s more epic than the chest hair of Evil Knievel. Insanely over the top but brimming with testosterone. Most of these magazine covers come from Man’s Conquest and Man’s Life, magazines published way back in the day, but anything with a man-eating lobster is just too good to pass up.
2011 will unofficially be known as the year of the meme. With nearly everything quickly spawning and gaining viral traction, we were able to rounded up the top memes from the entire year and put them into a complete list for your consumption. From Scumbags to Pepper Spray and every advice animal and vertical comic in-between, our 50 Greatest Internet Memes of ’11 has it all.
Trust us on this one. You’re going to want to bookmark this site. The site, Lists Of Note, is devoted entirely to historically significant notes. For example, Houdini’s Scene and Prop List… Are you kidding me. After reading the list you can only wish to see the trick and imagine when and where each of the props are used. Not to be short changed take a minute to explore Kurt Cobain’s Smells Like Teen Spirit music video set-list.
If you go to one of these 10 campuses across the country you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about and why we included them in this week’s roundup. It’s time we, collectively, shed some light on the slightly rebellious hipsters from around the nation and call to their attention that they have become the one thing they set out to oppose. A popular mainstream fad. Let them have it.
Like always, the editorial team over at Cracked does some excellent digging to uncover the most useful list that really make you say, “Huh! I learned something new everyday.” For example at #2 on the list of Dumb Video Game Innovations That Actually Exist, the “Kiss Controller” for Wii Bowling. See the picture below. It’s a far cry from necessity yet it’s strange but true. For your enjoyment, there are far more “sensual” video game realities on the list too.
In case you missed our tweets this week, this was the steamiest lists to make the rounds on the interwebs. This open-ended list currently has scenes from ‘Friends with Benefits’ and ‘Breaking Dawn’. If you’ve got a scene that was too good to be true; jump right in and add it to the list.
Men’s Health did a solid job surveying their audience and putting together the top 100 Hottest Women to ever walk the planet. We’re not here to mess with the details or the placement of these women on this list but these are some seriously beautiful, drop-dead, amazingly well-endowed females on here. Each one with photographic proof. Like #39, Mrs. Cindy Crawford below.
