2012 was an amazing year for Top 10 lists. It seemed like everyday there was another Top 10 List that made you forget about the last Top 10 you read. But as the year winds down, I believe I have some much needed perspective on this year’s best Top 10 lists. These are the lists that made us laugh, learn, cry and think. So without any further ado, here are my Top 10 Top 10 lists of 2012.
10.) The Top 10 Jehovah’s Witnesses
Always unpredictable, this list gave us America’s sweetheart Gary Trunks as the number one Jehovah’s Witness in 2011 but this year pulls a total curve ball and awards first place to Felicia Armencatcher.
9.) The Top 10 Nicknames for your Boyfriend
While it was a shock to most that “Fart Monster 2.0” made the list at #10, I think it was no surprise that “Meiber” was the #1 nickname for your boyfriend this year.
8.) The Top 10 most common answers in a crossword
This is one of those classic lists that you look forward to every year, and color me surprised that #1 was a tie this year between Reverend Desmond Tutu & Aloe Vera.
7.) The Top 10 Accidental Butt Tweets
The “butt text” has produced some great embarrassing moments over the year, but this year finally saw the creation of the “butt tweet”, which caused more than a handful of accidental tweets. There were so many great entries to this list . But I really think the winner of this list was well deserved. It’s classic in it’s simplicity and power…
Wow! Now, that’s an accidental tweet. Beautiful.
6.) The Top 10 Breakfasts
Way to go, Waffle! You did it again. Sadly, Captain Crunch was ineligible this year due to his use of steroids in 2011.
5.) The Top 10 Hats
I don’t know who judges this list, but the fact that fedora came in second to coonskin cap just goes to show you that this list has definitely lost its luster in the past years.
4.) The Top 10 guys who look like Cpt. Jack Sparrow but are not Cpt. Jack Sparrow.
The hipsters have really taken over this list in the last few years, but the winner and reigning champion is still Little Wayne.
3.) The Top 10 Fat Old Men in Bathing Suits
Every year I wonder how this list can top itself, but it always does. This year, we had plenty of Fat Old Men in bathing suits. I’m surprised we can narrow it down to just ten but this year’s winner shares the same things as previous winners. He’s European, he’s wearing a Speedo, he’s got bling and he’s in St. Tropez.
2.) The Top 10 people named Staci
This is one of my favorite Top 10 lists and what a shocker – Staci D. from Staten Island takes first place on this list after a three year absence. What a comeback!
1.) The Top 10 Movies with the word “Banana” in it.
What a great list, and no surprise here – the winner was the Steven Speilberg’s Lincoln. Surprisingl, the Osama Bin Laden thriller Zero Dark Thirty came in only at #7, which shows you just how tight the competition was this year. I think I speak for all movie lovers and banana fans when I say I was extremely disappointed that The Avengers didn’t make the cut.
Did I miss any lists that you think should’ve made this year’s list of The Top 10 Best Top 10 Lists? If so, please list them in the comment section with a reason why and I’ll put together another list of “The Top Ten Reader’s Favorite Top 10 Top 10 Lists That were omitted in The Top 10 Top 10 Lists of 2012.”
Thank you for reading, and may you always come in at #1 on everyone’s list.
