From Sarah Palin to the jacuzzi floozy!


I understand this is a tad anticlimactic, since we’ve already announced this blog’s most popular posts for all of 2008.

But for you folks who wager on the best of the month, and you know who you are, these were the five most popular posts for December.

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


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.
