Thanks and Goodbye
It’s been a nice run, but we’re ending the Tumblr. I have this thing called graduate school and Max…..well he hasn’t posted anything in about 9 months. It just seemed like the right time to move on. Here is our top 5 list of thank yous.
1. Mitt Romney
You provided us with such great material! At least 5 list posts. You got us to the Buzzfeed homepage, the Reddit homepage (2.5 million views) and a host of other sites. Mitt, thank you!
2. Google images
You made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you.
3. People who submitted list ideas: Blair, Ryan, Caitlin, Greg, Pat, Shea, Meaghan, some other peeps.
Here they are. Just a few of our friends/contributors hanging out. Not Abercrombie models
Honestly, I’m not sure wtf kind of programming you have these days but you were an inspiration in the 90s. Thank you, VH1
5. The fans
There weren’t that many of you, but we are forever grateful for your dedication to the blog. You made us feel like Z list celebrities. Thank you!
Good night and God Speed.
Sorry for the Delay
I’m working on my dissertation. Bah! Sorry for the delay. More upcoming lists soon!
Ethnic Bread Hierarchy
This Jewish girl just put her own bread 2nd. That is the power of the naan!
3. Scallion pancake

Lengthy Proper Nouns We Cant Abbreviate
We’ve thought of one from each category: Brand names, movies, TV, books and musicals:
1. I Cant Believe It’s Not Butter
I cant believe you successfully branded an entire sentence!
2. The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain
3. Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place
We are aware they abbreviated this title in later seasons
4. We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories From Rwanda
No disrespect to the book, which is great. It’s just a long title that needs to be said in full.
5. I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change
The musical comedy…..that’s totally annoying to insert into a normal dialogue.

Good Boston Marathon Memories
I lived on the course route throughout my childhood and have very good memories of the Boston marathon. Here are 5 of them.
1. Orange slice handouts
(The fans at this event are great)
2. The moment the Kenyan runners come by your area
(The leaders of the pack are also pretty great)
3. Heartbreak hill, where I lived
(And so is the rest of the crowd)
4. Johnny Kelley and his statue in Newton
(A Boston Marathon icon)
5. Team Hoyt
(Two other Boston Marathon icons)
Thank you to all the doctors, EMTs, police officers and pedestrians who helped to keep all participants like the ones above safe yesterday.

Unfunny Main Characers Surrounded By Hilarious Supporting Roles
Note: This doesn’t mean we don’t like the movie. We love these movies. It just means the supporting roles were way funnier than the lead, sometimes on purpose.
1. Cady Heron in Mean Girls
2. Mitch from Old School
3. Striker from Airplane!
4. Josh from Road Trip
5. Dean from Waiting
All these people had a moment or two, but generally speaking, they were relatively unfunny compared to the others.

Just Barely Acceptable Eating Habits II
There’s a fine line between unacceptable and just barely acceptable. We like to pin down the latter.
1. Taking the nacho that’s attached to all other nachos.
"I wouldn’t want to manhandle this entire thing just to get one of the nachos off the plate. Guess I’ll have to take this one". We barely accept this.
2. Eating large tomato’s like apples
Just BARELY acceptable. Actually this could be debated.
3. Taking the cheese off your pizza
People do this. And we just barely accept it.
4. Eating the fried part of the onion rings
And leaving the onions
5. Eating spaghetti like this:
Yeah nobody LIKES to look at that but its just barely acceptable because….well….you’ve been there too.
