I think we could invent an 11 points drinking game. Take a shot for every Simpsons reference. We'd be drunk in 11 points or less. I love it. My day is not complete without a good Simpsons reference. The more obscure the better!I like this challenge a lot. So pour yourself a nice cold Duff, Red Tick Beer, Düff, Skittlebrau, Fudd, Lady Duff, Tarter Control Duff, Henry K. Duff's Private Reserve, Flaming Moe, Long Island Iced Tea or bathtub mint julep -- because this list is going to be the cause of and solution to all of your problems.

The comment about drinking in Mississippi is ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT!!! We are not so backwards as most seem to think.Then, four minutes later, Kevin wrote a response to his own comment...

oh sorry i just looked that up and its actually true FML. everyone is going to hate me now *long sigh*No, Kevin, NO ONE is going to hate you. In fact, I'm so impressed that someone on the Internet made an impassioned argument then actually apologized and retracted it when he realized he was wrong that I'm going to send you two stickers, one for each comment.
I really like your list 11 things Google should atone for on its 11th anniversary. I found something that Amazon should atone for. I was looking up a costume for this Halloween and I decided that I wanted to go as a black mage from Final Fantasy. I typed black mage into Amazon and it said "Did you mean black male?" I thought slavery was banned over 100 years ago. Why would I want to buy a black male on Amazon?Well, if they actually sold you one, you could probably blackmail them. HI-YO!
how ironic is it that you, a seeming stickler for proper editorial procedure, and a frequent censurer of common internet misusage, would accidentally overlook such an obvious error as "boundries" for "boundaries."How ironic? I'd say 60 percent. It would be a full 100 percent if my website was all about improper spelling and grammar on the Internet and it was called NoInternetBoudries.com.

Hey Sam,I'm not entirely sure why this memory is so vivid, but it is. Back when I was like 14 or so, my parents and I went on a trip to New York City. We were on the South Street Seaport (not to be confused with the South Street Squidport) and I wandered into a gift shop. I tend to do this. For some reason, as my parents will readily attest, I'm absolutely captivated by cheap tourist-y souvenir shops.
I've taken the liberty of sending you [this] screenshot of the actual link to [your] 11 Reasons Why You Should Stop Crapping On the WNBA list. You'll notice that the ISP renders the link differently.
The only reason for this censorship that I can think of is that the address involves the word "crapping". But then again, I can access almost every other list on your site, including the ones with "sexy", "nude" or "breasts" in the title. The only other list that has been blocked is the one about accidentally pornographic pictures. Oh well, I can't say that I'm surprised, considering this majestic country has blocked the Wikipedia article on penises.
The homepage is not blocked, so the WNBA list will be viewable up until you update the site with a new 11 points. Besides, I'm sure that any person in this country that has the sense to be a regular visitor to your site also knows how to bypass our ridiculous censorship laws.
As I'm sure you never get tired of hearing, love the site.
I found out about this website a few weeks ago from cracked.com, and since then, I've been visiting this website everyday. All of your lists are great! I wanted to see more of your work so I looked at www.pandasmash.com, but the last time that was updated was like a year ago. What happened? I loved your videos as much as these lists, even though when I found pandasmash on break.com and most of the comments for the videos seemed to be bad. Did you just stop or what?The back story here: In late 2006, my roommate Paul and I started a website for our online videos called Panda Smash. We posted more than 100 videos, which, eventually, caught the eye of Break.com, leading to them bringing us both on board to make videos full time.

[E]xplain how Jimmy knows how to get the second flute despite no one ever playing the game before.If you don't know what she's talking about, in the climax of "The Wizard", Fred Savage's autistic little brother competes in the Nintendo World Championships, where he and two others battle it out in Super Mario Bros. 3. But... the movie was released before SMB3 came out, so in the film they played it up that the competitors would be playing a video game that no one had ever played before.

Abortions for all? BOOOOOO!OK... abortions for none!

I did want to add to your list of Google atonements (though the first is more amusing than something that the browser needs to atone for).First of all, this makes me remember when I traveled back to the time when dinosaurs weren't just confined to zoos.
If you type in the words "I like..." the first selection that comes up is "I like to tape my thumbs to my hands to see what it would be like to be a dinosaur." I have to wonder how many people actually type that into google...

Which team is more heartbreaking: The Cleveland Browns or The Cleveland Indians?No brainer. It's the Indians.
In inbox-o-rama 7 you said you retracted "Curb Your Enthusiasm" from an older list. Since it is no longer a part of it, this means the list of shows you have completely given up on is now a 10 point list. With that in mind, your tag line for your website says "Because top 10 lists are for cowards". If I'm not mistaken, that means that list is now cowardly.That's a good call Steven. And "Curb" is back in a GIANT way. Sunday's "Seinfeld" reunion wasn't just perfect in its execution... it was such an event that I now want to start watching "Curb" live because I'm so excited about it. I've been a TiVo user for seven years and there's almost nothing (outside of sports) that I've ever watched live since... so this is a big deal to me. This "Curb" season has the potential to be that good.
