Odd Blog best of 2008: Stupid stuff kept on coming!

December 16, 2008

It was a great year for really stupid stuff. Absurdity and irony abounded, and traffic to the Oddly Enough blog was measured in the millions. We asked a bunch of famous people their opinion of Oddly Enough, and the satisfaction in their faces here is all the reward this simple, honest blogger needs.

Here are two top ten lists for 2008. The first were your ten favorite posts.

Below that, I’m offering my own favorite ten for the year, like anybody cares.
