|Demetri Martin is funny.|
No, not the yearly time that I actually scrub the floor behind my toilet. Not my annual "Whole Foods Parking Lot Taunting Party" in which I eat a juicy Five Guys burger in front of the yuppies as they return to their cars with their organic bird seed bread.
No, it is time for the 3rd annual Cheeseboy countdown of the top 10 posts of the year. Each year I attempt and collect the most popular and most funny posts of the year. This year was the most difficult challenge yet. I made a goal to increase quality and decrease the quantity of my posts this year and as a result, I ended up with over 40 posts that I wanted to include in the countdown.
Alas, with the help of my beloved wife, who helped cut out the truly strange posts, I whittled the list down to ten. Here they are, from 10 to 1, in my preferred order. Please feel free to click on the links and revisit their supposed awesomeness. There will be a brief survey at the end. (No one from India will be calling you.)
