The 20 Most Popular Posts in 2009

Barring a miracle in the next two days, these will be the twenty most viewed posts on the site in 2009.

1. Superstar Pro Wrestling Game
Became incredibly popular when somebody linked to it on a Pro Wrestling forum. For a while, my site traffic increased ten-fold. Then, almost immediately, I went back to Jay Leno-sized ratings.

2. Can't Stop Eating
So popular I had to go back and update the link - which had become obsolete.

3. Wanda Sykes Living in Delco
A real juggernaut. It must come up in Google's top five when doing a search on this. (By the way - I saw Sykes strolling around Media this past summer, so story confirmed).

4. SNL Calculator Sketch
For the longest time, people were finding this sketch on Hulu through me. Probably because I seem to be the only person in America who liked it.

5. Casey Wilson on Fallon
My reaction to Casey Wilson's horribly unfunny comedy sketch on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night. Link is long dead, so you'll have to take my word for it.

6. Bill Clinton's Nose
Last year's winner. Gets popular again whenever Clinton appears on a talk show.

7. Raymond J. Johnson, Jr.
You doesn't have to call him Johnson.

8. Sherco Grand Slam Baseball
9. Strat-O-Matic Baseball
My baseball board game phase.

10. Post 666 - Lovitz as Satan
I'd like to think this was attracting Jon Lovitz fans, and not devil worshipers.

11. Political Yearbook Photos
Is popular - I think - because I used an awkward high school picture of Michele Obama to illustrate it.

12. Beatles Box Sets
Something I actually put some effort into writing made the Top 20? Something must be wrong here...

13. Solo Cups - Red Ones
One of my dumbest posts ever continues to make the top list.

14. Starship Size Comparison Chart
Star Trek = hits.

15. Dove - the Band of Love
One of many Devo posts. This one was popular last year, too.

16. Beatles perform Shakespeare
I think this clip is why God created YouTube.

17. Marilyn Chambers
I was certain this would be #1 - what with her being a porn star and everything.

18. Michael Saxton
The fondly-remembered Michael Jackson-themed wrestler from the '80s.

19. Letterman interviews Mike Singletary
Link to a sketch - get hits.

20. Top 20 Famous Deaths of 2008 (Part 3 of 4)
Why this particular entry, I do not know.
